      The Wassily chair, as it is known today, was originally named the B3 chair when it was first designed by Marcel Breuer at the Bauhaus in 1925. The chair soon became a favorite of fellow Bauhaus professor, Wassily Kandinsky. Kandinsky liked it so much, in fact, that Breuer made him a duplicate for his own, and when it was later put into production it took on Kandinsky’s name through this association.
