The D4 by Marcel Breuer through Tecta can, in effect, be referred to as the foldable brother of the Wassily chair. Originally named B4, this elegant folding chair presents itself as a mobile version of the steel tube lounge chair and thus a version which can be used when and where it is needed. The background behind and the materials used make the D4 an example of Bauhaus furniture par excellence.
