Tubular steel classics - elegant shelves B 22

Inspired by the furniture of the architects Marcel Breuer, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Mart Stam, as well as by the possibilities of tubular steel as a material, Thonet began developing a number of in-house designs starting in the 1920s – mainly side furniture that was largely published in the 1930/31 catalog. The shelf B 22 is one of those pieces.

Marcel Breuer

Marcel Breuer was born in 1902 in Pécs, Hungary. He started an art degree but chose instead to study at the Staatliches Bauhaus in Weimar from 1920 to 1924. Breuer took over the management of the joiner’s workshop at the Bauhaus from 1925 to 1928, which had meanwhile moved to Dessau. During this time, he was strongly influenced by constructivism and De Stijl and developed a few trend-setting tubular steel furniture designs. In 1928 Breuer moved to Berlin and dedicated himself mainly to the field of interior design. In 1931 he travelled extensively before starting work on several aluminium furniture designs in Switzerland in 1932. Breuer moved to London in 1935, where he worked as an architect. In 1937 he was granted a professorship for architecture at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts, where he later opened an architectural office together with Walter Gropius. Breuer opened his own studio in New York in 1946 and realized numerous designs in Europe and the United States. He is considered one of the most important architects and designers of modernism. Marcel Breuer died on 1 July 1981 in New York.
