Dormitory Furniture: Desk
Designed for James E. Rhoads Residence Hall
Marcel Breuer, American (born Hungary), 1902 - 1981
In 1938, Bryn Mawr College commissioned Marcel Breuer to design a suite of furniture for the rooms of a new dormitory. The suite, which consisted of a dresser, desk, chair, hanging bookcase, and mirror, was Breuer's first furniture commission in the United States. It was used until 1998, when the dormitory was renovated.
