Designer and Architect Marcel Breuer (1902 – 1981) was a incredibly influential figure. When only 23 years of age, a talent at the Bauhaus, he pioneered the use of tubular steel in furniture manufacturing. Through this innovation he created several iconic design classics such as the Wassily chair and the famed cantilevered chairs with rattan seat pads.
This bent plywood table from the early twentieth century, Breuer designed for Isokon, in London UK. An original beech edition, his table was originally made by Isokon, a company now located very close to Béton Brut gallery in Hackney Wick. We have recently had all the edges and surfaces refinished by our restorer however, there are a few minor signs of the pieces age as should be expected with a piece this old.
