This dressing table is a journeyman’s project by the designer Marcel Breuer, who later became famous for his tubular steel chairs. It is an interior design element for the prototype Haus am Horn of 1923. Although dressing tables are no longer popular, the modernity of this specimen lies in the functional reduction of its classic elements.
