Also known as:  Breuer, Marcel L.; Breuer, Marcel Lajos

Birth Place: Pécs (Baranya, Hungary)

In the 1920s, Breuer led the carpentry workshop at the Bauhaus, designing innovative modern furniture which rejected formalism and ornamentation, including the cantilevered chair and his famous 'Wassily' chair. From 1928 to 1931 he worked on architectural projects for Walter Gropius. He emigrated to the United States in 1937 and became a professor at Harvard University. While at Harvard, he and Gropius formed a partnership designing buildings that were influenced by New England vernacular architecture.
