The design for these tubular steel and canvas chairs is the result of Marcel Breuer's improvisation with the handlebars of his Adler bicycle. This set of six Breuer chairs consists of three sections of continuous chrome-plated tubular steel bolted together with canvas back and seat covers. The Gropius House in Lincoln, Massachusetts contains a significant collection of furniture designed by Marcel Breuer and fabricated in the Bauhaus workshops, including a convertible daybed, a cantilevered armchair, nesting tables, and side tables.
