The first version ever made was called the B3 chair. But Breuer had built a second chair for the apartment of the famous painter Wassily Kandinsky, mid 1920's, who used to be Breuer's classmate. "I chose metal for this furniture, so that it would correspond with the characteristics of the modern room. The heavy upholstery of a comfortable armchair has been replaced by planes of tightly stretched fabric and a number of lightweight tubular bars. It's the apparatus of modern living" - Marcel Breuer.
