Matteo Grassi founded in 1880, is an Italian furniture manufacturer, characterized by their eclectic and angular designs. Combining mid-century Modernism, 1960s-era futuristic design, and the geometric forms of Bauhaus, Matteo Grassi’s line of Minimalist pieces includes a wide variety of seating and functional furniture, such as chaise lounges, stools, armchairs, sofas, tables, and modular seating cubes.
Marcel Adios Breuer (21 May 1902 – 1 July 1981), was a Hungarian-born modernist architect, and furniture designer. At the Bauhaus he designed the Wassily Chair and the Cesca Chair which is “among the 10 most important chairs of the 20th century.
Breuer extended the sculpture vocabulary he had developed in the carpentry shop at the Bauhaus into a personal architecture that made him one of the world’s most popular architects at the peak of 20th-century design.
His work includes art museums, libraries, college buildings, office buildings, and residences. Many are in a Brutalist architecture style, including the former IBM Research and Development facility which was the birthplace of the first personal computer.
