A protege of Bauhaus founder Walter Gropius, Hungarian-born modernist architect and furniture designer Marcel Breuer embodied many of the School's distinctive concepts and was one of the School's most famous students. Breuer returned to the Bauhaus to teach carpentry from 1925 to 1928 and during this time designed his functional, simple and distinctly modern tubular-steel furniture collection. His attention drifted towards architecture, and after practising privately, he worked as a professor at Harvard's School of Design under Gropius. Breuer was also honoured as the first architect to be the sole artist of an exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Marcel Breuer's most famous designs include the Wassily lounge chair, named after his Bauhaus room mate Wassily Kandinsky, and the Cesca after his daughter Francesca.
