Bauhaus Desk by Marcel Breuer for Gavina

This rare drafting table or desk was designed by Marcel Breuer in 1926. This one is produced by Gavina in the 1960s.
The trestles are made of chromed metal and the table top is made of brown smoked glass.
It is a very rare piece and a beautiful set with the Cesca Chair, we’ve bought it as a set from the 1st owners.

The B32 side chair was designed by Marcel Breuer for Thonet in 1927.
It is made of chrome-plated tubular steel, black lacquered bentwood and cane.
For this design, Breuer was inspired by the cantilever chair of Mart Stam, who designed it already in 1926.
The first producer of the B32 was Thonet, starting in 1927.
Later in the 1950s, Gavina also started making them with Breuer’s blessing and participation.
Gavina was the first to name the chair “Cesca”, after Breuer’s daughter, Francesca.

The price is for the set.
