The Pritchards set up the Isokon Furniture Company in 1935 with the help of Walter Gropius. Hungarian architect and former Bauhaus student Marcel Breuer was brought in to design a long chair in plywood. Breuer finished the design in 1936 and production began the following year. By 1939, the company was making seven to nine chairs per week.
