B 22 a I b
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 chairs 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.
B 22 a Shelf with evenly distributed compartments, B 22 b with compartments at folder-height distance. Frames of both versions are pre-drilled, chrome-plated tubular steel, wooden parts in stained beech, lacquered or structured coating in various colors.
Designer: Marcel Breuer
