when he conceived the first tubular steel chair, the Wassily chair, based on the
tubed frame of a bicycle. Believed to be the first bent tubular steel
It was designed for Kandinsky's quarters at the Dessau Bauhaus. It was at the time quite revolutionary in its use of tubular steel. It was inspired by an Adler bike.
