First and foremost Marcel Breuer is known as an architect. He, like many Bauhaus students and teachers experimented in industrial furniture designs. Similar to Mies Van Der Rohe, Marcel Breuer left Germany as the Nazis began to come to power. While Mies left for the U.S, Marcel left for England. In London he worked for the earliest modern furniture design firms in England, The Isokon company. He would eventually end up in the United States, like Mies Van Der Rohe, where he taught at Harvards Architecture School. He opened his own state side architecture firms office and then proceeded to open a European branch in Paris.
