Marcel Breuer B32 Cesca Dining Room Chairs for Gavina Knoll, 1963, Set of 4


Set of four original B32 Cesca dining chairs produced by Gavina in 1963.
They are all signed with the original paper mark.
Cesca chairs were initially designed in 1928 by French Hungarian architect Marcel Breuer and named after his daughter Francesca.
Gavina was the official Italian producer for Marcel Breuer furniture; in 1968, the society was bought by Knoll International, which took the ownership of the official license.
Modernist, architect, and furniture designer, Marcel Breuer, extended the sculptural vocabulary he had developed in the carpentry shop at the Bauhaus into a unique architecture that made him one of the world’s most famous architects at the peak of 20th-century design.
These Bauhaus-style dining chairs are part of the most essential list from the 20th-century design furniture collection. Chrome tube frame. Seat and back in Wicker Wien Straw with black lacquered beech edge. Excellent vintage condition, as it is possible to see from the pictures the wooden back presents some chips. Chrome structure in perfect condition, without any oxide or rust.
