The designer and architect Marcel Breuer (1902–1981) numbers among the most important and influential designers of the twentieth century. His tubular steel furnishings, including the legendary Wassily chair created by Breuer during his time at the Bauhaus, are the best known today. However, numerous pieces made out of aluminium or bent plywood are also regarded as classics of modern furniture design. During the 1930s, Breuer began a second and highly successful career in the USA as an architect. In addition to numerous private homes, prestigious projects such as the Whitney Museum in New York and the UNESCO Headquarters in Paris attracted international attention.

The retrospective organized by the Vitra Design Museum is devoted not only to Breuer's contributions to twentieth-century design, but also to his diverse architectural oeuvre, which has been largely forgotten during the past decades. The catalogue, which was edited by Alexander von Vegesack and Mathias Remmele, is the first publication to give appropriate consideration to both areas of Breuer's work. It contains essays by renowned experts on Breuer (Joachim Driller, Isabelle Hyman, Otakar Máčel and others) as well as personal statements by I.M. Pei and Robert F. Gatje, a previous associate of Marcel Breuer.
