How To: Fix Marcel Breuer's Wassily Chair

How To: Fix Marcel Breuer's Wassily Chair


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!

He should spiff up both of them. I think the metal chair can benefit from a few coat of metal paint (maybe red or robin's egg for the legs and frame and then white for the seat and back). And then throw on a seat cushion. I can see that as a cute chair with some TLC.

Why not just get rid of the Wassily chair and put the old crappy desk chair out. It seems the frame of the original isn't serving any purpose....and it's ugly to boot!

It looks like one of those chairs for the bathtubs that you find in nursing homes.

Only a guy would call that "fixing" it! I would say a piece like that would be worth fixing, rather than risking further damage.
