    Vibrantly into modernity

    Elegant steel and vibrant concrete

    In 1956, Time magazine described him as one of the most important “formers of the 20th century”. To this day, Marcel Breuer (1902–1981) – Bauhaus graduate and lecturer, emigrant from Nazi Germany, professor at Harvard and internationally renowned architect – is considered a shining light of modernism by architects and designers alike. With his famous tubular steel chairs, which are still in use today, he reinvented sitting and was already considered a design god before he turned to architecture. Breuer's buildings, including the UNESCO building in Paris and the Whitney Museum in New York, are less well-known, but are in no way inferior to his furniture icons. His innovative single-family homes, which distinguish between semi-public and private spaces, are also considered outstanding designs.

    In this introduction, we explore Breuer's entire career through some of his most influential projects and ideas, from his signature tubular steel furniture to the famous two-cell houses to the large-scale projects that made him a pioneer of brutalism.
