I Am Still Alive recently shared his easy fix for a Marcel Breuer Wassily Chair ($1,658), which is fit for Renewal month. Instead of dropping nearly 1700 bucks on a new one, contacting Knoll or the leather worker you know at an additional expense, he proposes to . . .
He writes that his fix involved the following:
Take another chair – in this case a steel seat from the same period, but fabricated initially for a decidedly less rarefied setting (a French motorcycle factory) – and place it inside the Wassily.
What do you think? Clever fix or impractical improvisation? Tell me by commenting below!
