7 furniture design iconized 20th century

Considered one of the best modern designs, the "Wassily Chair" was designed by Marcel Breuer from 1925 to 1926. The chair, which was handcrafted until 1950, continued to be produced in the factory after these years. The chair, which was designed using metal and leather that went beyond the usual use of wood at that time, still comes up frequently today.

We continue with another icon "Barcelona chair" that we all know well, the chair designed by Mies Van Der Rohe for the Barcelona fair in 1929 is highly appreciated.
