The “Cesca” chair bears the name of Breuer’s daughter. Designed in 1928, it was the object of a dispute into German courts. Finally, the patent for the cantilever chair was assigned to Mart Stam, but in those years, many people worked on the idea of a chair constituted by steel tubes, taking advantage of the tensile properties of this “new” material, which eliminated the back legs. Breuer and Stam worked together on this idea, as did Mies van der Rohe and others involved in the Bauhaus. Whether it was the first or the last, the Breuer cantilever shows important design and construction differences, beginning from a wooden frame that makes the seat and the back rigid. In this way, he avoided to use support bars, placed below the seat and behind the back in the cantilevers by Stam and Mies.
