Artist Review: Marcel Breuer

Born in Hungary, Breuer graduated from the German Bauhaus School. He eventually moved to the United States and taught at Harvard University. His design is inherited by the modern Bauhaus style. His work is light and elegant. It emphasizes the structure of pure form and tidiness. He designed the Wassily Chair (also known as Model B3 Chair), which is made with leather. Despite the fact that this chair is made with leather, it looks uncomfortable. However, I do like the shape and its clean lines.
