B9 Nesting tables

By Thonet


  • Description

    During his time at the Bauhaus Marcel Breuer experimented with steel and tubular steel as materials by logically translating the principles of furniture design appropriate for the material involved from wood to this new material. The proximity to the Junkers plant in Dessau was of enormous advantage. Among his first designs are the nesting tables B 9 and shelves as well as side furniture (B 10, B 22). The Thonet catalog from 1930/31 included the complete program range. B 9 set tables were, for example, used in the cafeteria of Walter Gropius' Bauhaus building. Today, these elegant designs find their place in homes and the semi-public sector.

    Marcel Breuer

    Protégé of Bauhaus founder, Walter Gropius, Marcel Breuer embodied many of the School's distinctive concepts and was and one of the School's most famous students. He returned shortly thereafter to teach carpentry from 1925 to 1928, and during this time designed his tubular-steel furniture collection: functional, simple and distinctly modern. His attention drifted towards architecture, and after practicing privately, he worked as a professor at Harvard's School of Design under Gropius. Breuer was also honored as the first architect to be the sole artist of an exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
