It was by drawing inspiration from the curved wood technique perfected by Michael Thonet that Marcel Breuer had the idea of working with tubular steel as a furniture structure. Among his first tests were the set of four B 9 nesting tables.

These small tables lend themselves to many uses – as a side table to complement a set of armchairs, as a practical storage surface or to display in a pretty vase filled with flowers. After use, they slide under each other to take up less space.

The particularity of this program lies in its functional simplicity: the nesting tables are simply made of chrome-plated curved steel tubes and rectangular tops.

Originally designed for the Bauhaus canteen in Dessau, the B 9 nesting tables soon found their way into student studios and mansions designed by Walter Gropius.

ThonetClip 

ThonetClip allows you to hide bulky electrical cables discreetly and elegantly. The black magnetic clip can be attached anywhere on the tubular steel and remains hidden behind the furniture, regardless of its arrangement in the room. The cable is very simply fixed in the channel provided for this purpose.

Marcel Breuer

Marcel Breuer

Marcel Breuer was born in 1902 in Pécs, Hungary. He began studying art, but chose to study at the Staatliches Bauhaus in Weimar from 1920 to 1924. From 1925 to 1928, Breuer was head of the carpentry workshop at the Bauhaus, which had meanwhile moved to Dessau. During this period, he was strongly influenced by Constructivism and De Stijl, and developed a number of pieces of furniture in tubular steel that became all the rage. In 1928, Breuer moved to Berlin and concentrated on interior design. In 1931, he travelled extensively before starting work on several pieces of aluminium furniture in Switzerland in 1932. In 1935, Breuer moved to London, where he worked as an architect. In 1937, he was awarded a chair in architecture at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts, where he later opened an architectural practice with Walter Gropius. Breuer opened his own studio in New York in 1946 and completed numerous projects 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.
