Knoll International 51C Cesca Chair, set of 4



Available for local pickup in Los Angeles, CA.

Knoll International 51C Cesca chair by Marcel Breuer, black, armless, 1970s. Labelled "Knoll International" with Fifth Avenue address, which dates these chairs to the early 1970s. (Knoll moved to their Fifth Avenue headquarters - designed by Gae Aulenti - in 1970). Designed in 1928, Marcel Breuer’s Cesca chair married traditional craftsmanship with Industrial methods and materials to help make tubular steel furniture an international sensation and a modern institution. The cantilevered form exploits the possibilities unique to the material and gives the chair added flexibility and comfort. Offered in arm and armless versions with a fully upholstered seat and back, or with handwoven cane inserts. Here we have the iconic design in its most graphic and striking form - armless, polished chrome with original black textile. 6 available. This listing is for a single chair.
