" The Cesca Chair got its title from Breuer’s daughter Cheska. Combining materials both traditional and new, it represented the perfect melding of cane and chromium-plated tubular steel. Designed in 1928, the original model was armless." - Mirror80 (online Nov. 2016)

Aalto's experiments  led to a number of patents: for example, he invented a new form of laminated bent-plywood furniture in 1932.  His experimental method had been influenced by his meetings with various members of the Bauhaus design school, especially László Moholy-Nagy, whom he first met in 1930. Aalto's furniture was exhibited in London in 1935, to great critical acclaim, and to cope with the consumer demand Aalto, together with his wife Aino, Maire Gullichsen and Nils-Gustav Hahl founded the company Artek that same year.
