The Lighthouse will host an international exhibition on the work of Marcel Breuer in from 16 June – 27 August. The show, which was curated by the Vitra Museum deals with his early work as a teacher at the Bauhaus, his furniture designs and his built work in the USA and Europe. Most readers will be very familiar with his furniture. Breuer is credited with inventing the tubular steel chair. The ‘Wasilly’ chair is his trademark. However, his work in the USA and France may be less familiar. The show is a real coup for the Lighthouse, this is its only UK showing. For lovers of Bauhaus furniture and designs and post-war poured concrete buildings this show is an absolute must.
