Marcel Breuer's cantilevers B32 and B64, without and with armrests, are some of the early sophisticated models of the famous German tubular furniture and along with others rang in the triumphal success of this furniture type. Designers associated with the Bauhaus were similarly fascinated by tubular steel as material for furniture construction and the concept of cantilevers as both brought them a step closer to the ideal of a no-nonsense functional chair. Marcel Breuer's designs were pathbreaking with regard to both aspects.
Tubular steel opened up new possibilities to design furniture stripped of all unnecessary material, a match for the programmatic as well as aesthtic ideas of the Bauhaus school.
The reduced form of this cantilever is elegantly supported by back and seat out of a particular cane netting called "VIennese netting" and popularly known from Thonet's Viennese coffe house chair. It creates an almost naturalistic contrast to the austere frame making the B32 easy to combine with a wide range of styles.
This designer chair, that truly deserves to be called a classic, is reproduced by steelform true to the original and subject to stringent quality control.
