Pair Mid Century Barcelona Stainless Steel Lounge Chairs by Mies van der Rohe for Knoll (MR15500) Price: $9000 Questions about this item?
Mies van der Rohe began his career in architecture in Berlin, working as an architect first in the studio of Bruno Paul and then, like Le Corbusier and Walter Gropius, Peter Behrens. In the mid-1920s, he began to design furniture, pieces that he conceived and created for particular interiors. In 1927, he met Lilly Reich, a Bauhaus alumnus who collaborated with Mies on his first versions of a cantilevered chair with a tubular steel frame. The cantilevered chair had a curved frame that exploited the aesthetic, as well as the structural possibilities of this material. Their experiments culminated in the virtuoso Brno chair designed between 1929 and 1930 with a chromed flat steel frame.
Stainless steel frame with hand-ground and hand-buffed finish; cowhide belting; aluminum rivets.
Price is for a pair, 5 pairs are available
