The Wassily Chair, also known as the Model B3 chair, was designed by Marcel in 1925-1926 while he was the head of the cabinet-making workshop at the Bauhaus, in Dessau, Germany. Named after the friend and famous painter Wassily Kandinsky, The chair was first manufactured in the late 1920s by Thonet, the German-Austrian furniture manufacturer most known for its bent-wood chair designs, under the name Model B3.
Eventually The chair took the name "Wassily" from its intended recipient. The Wassily chair was later produced in collaboration with Karl Koerner, who was the head smith at the Junkerswerken in Dessau. Over the next four years, The chair went through a transformation while Marcel was employed by Standard-Mobel. The Wassily chair was again redesigned for Thonet, after his resignation from Standard-Mobel, and would remain the permanent design for Marcel's revolutionary chair. It is a club armchair with all the stuffing taken out, leaving a behind a skeletal framework and stretched seat, back, and arms.
