The Wassily Chair, 1925
The Wassily Chair was designed in 1925 and seems to be his more experimental phase in design. The actual piece was inspired by the shape and form of bicycle handlebars and was made for Wassily Kandinsky, an influential Russian painter and art theorist of the time. The frame was made from tubular steel which later became chrome plated and the seat came in a black canvas, fabric or leather. Obviously this specific shape has been copied many times but they’re not a scratch on the original, these chairs were purely functional and have the qualities of being hygienic, comfortable and most importantly cheap for the masses.
