Marcel Breuer Design and Architecture
As a designer and architect, Marcel Breuer (1902-1981) is one of the most influential and important designers of the 20th century. By virtue of his innovative furniture alone, Breuer could be ranked among the most influential designers of the modernist period. This presentation of Breuer's prolific and varied career offers a balanced exploration of his furniture, interiors, and buildings, revealing that he was a powerful force in the architectural theory and practice of his era.

About the traveling exhibition
The Marcel Breuer retrospective conceived and organized by Vitra Design Museum is the very first exhibition that also appropriately presents all the different fields in which he was active - and treats them as equal aspects of his oeuvre. While the thematically structured show displays almost all Breuer's major items of furniture design, his very wide-ranging architectural work is essentially presented in the form of 12 exemplary buildings.
