Professor Ergo's Thoughts:
Marcel Breuer designed the Knoll Wassily Chair while apprenticing at the Bauhaus in 1925. The frame of this visually interesting chair was actually inspired by a bicycle. While it may be dismissed by some as more of a curiosity than a practical seating option, the Knoll Wassily Chair passes the "butt test" as a comfortable sit.
