Marcel Breuer

Our reproductions are inspired by Marcel Breuer
 
1902-1981) Marcel Breuer's tubular steel chairs were a daring departure from traditional wood furniture, this "radical" idea was sparked by Breuer's familiar bicycle handlebars. "Mass production," he said, ". . .made me interested in polished metal, in shiny and impeccable lines in space, as new components of our interiors. I considered such polished and curved lines not only symbolic of our modern technology but actually to be technology." Drawing upon this image of "shiny and impeccable lines in space" Breuer designed his famous Wassilly chair in 1927 for Wassilly Kandinsky while both were in residence at the Bauhaus. Breuer subsequently designed a range of tubular metal furniture that had singular advantages--affordability, hygiene and an inherent resilience. Breuer considered his designs essential for modern living. In 1928 Breuer left the Bauhaus and moved to Berlin and then to England in 1935 when the Nazis made it impossible for anyone who had been a part of the Bauhaus--a "hotbed of Bolshevism"--to practice architecture. In 1937, he joined Walter Gropius in his architectural practice and also at Harvard as a professor. Breuer moved to New York in 1946 to found his own architectural firm, and like Corbusier, chose concrete as his medium of choice. He used concrete in his design of the Whitney Museum of Art.

1926-1998). Verner Panton was the most remarkable innovative talent of 20th Century design and architecture. Verner Panton's design was consistently brilliant. Verner Panton was first to create inflatable furniture, pioneered with the much acclaimed single molded plastic Panton chair and refused to accept gravity by creating the Flying Chair. Verner Panton envisioned a colorful and happy future. The career of Verner Panton was highlighted by the Fantasy landscapes he created for Bayer in 1968 and 1970 (Dralon & Visiona II) that have now achieved cult status. Verner Panton was not obstructed by limitations that adults incur throughout life. Instead, he thought and created with the imaginary vision of a child, in bold beautiful colors and shapes. Verner Panton was blessed with his beautiful wife Marianne, daughter Carin and their dog "Happy" (the name says it all)! He departed this world way too early in 1998 but his dreams live on in thousands & thousands of people and an entire new generation is still discovering his magical world every day

mies-van-der-roheOur reproductions are inspired by Mies Van Der Rohe
 
(1886-1969) Born in Germany and trained in the family stonemason business, the architecture and design of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe became iconic of the cool, minimalist International Style from the first half of the century. A member of the "Novembergruppe," an organization intent on expanding the scope and impact of modernism, Mies spent the first part of the 1920's designing buildings in this style. In 1927 the design and patent for his tubular steel cantilevered chair started to bring him into the international spotlight. The most famous of his piece is the 'Barcelona' chair, the outward appearance replaced the cozy qualities of a large upholstered armchair with a smaller and more streamlined chair. Mies was director of the Bauhaus school in Berlin from 1930-32, and moved to Chicago in 1938, where he taught architecture at the Armour Institute. He designed the Seagram Building in New York (1962-67), a glass and steel building infused with the same affinity for balance and a sleek visual form as his furniture.
