The newly introduced Cesca Stools, a new take on Marcel Breuer’s iconic Cesca Chair, continues to make waves with the design press. In its March/April 2020 issue, Luxe Interiors + Design featured the piece in its market trend report. Themed “Earth Angel”, the editorial looks to nature for rich colors, organic shapes and inspiring patterns, pointing to the split-upholstered Cesca Chair’s vibrant and colorful adaptation reminiscent of the Northern Lights. The editorial circulated in ten states: Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, New York, Oregon, Texas and Washington.
Of the natural phenomenon, Luxe Interiors + Design writes, “The Aurora Borealis starts when the sun releases charged particles that react with gaseous atoms in the Earth’s atmosphere. The gas, shifted by solar wind, dictates the vibrant hues that dance across the sky—neon greens emerge from low-altitude oxygen molecules and blues and purples result from nitrogen.”
Expanding on the Marcel Breuer Collection, Knoll introduced the Cesca Stools in 2019 concurrent with the Bauhaus centennial. “In honor of the 100th anniversary of the Bauhaus, we’ve taken the Cesca chair to new heights—specifically bar and counter,” comments Knoll Design Director Benjamin Pardo. “The design epitomizes the marriage of industrial materials, craft and art, which is the core foundation of the Bauhaus.”
