Marcel Breuer (1902-1981) enjoyed a remarkable dual career as a furniture designer who created the first tubular steel chair and as an architect who helped define mid-century American modernism through projects like the exhibition house installed in the garden of the Museum of Modern Art in 1949. His design vocabulary has insinuated itself into everyday life, whether in the furniture of your doctor’s office, the rush matting offered by IKEA or the modular concrete facades of buildings found in every city in America.
Breuer’s career culminates in the headquarters for UNESCO, a project that marked the transition from Bauhaus-inspired glass houses to the monumental sculptural concrete buildings of his later career.
