The body of the individual sitting on the chair does not touch the frame of the chair.  Breuer once delineated his creation as his most comfortable, the least artistic, the most logical, the least cozy and the most mechanical design of all time (“Marcel Breuer Digital Archive,” 2013). The canvass accommodates, back, frames and seems to float in air which would take furnishing into a radically new direction.
