Questions about this item?

Knoll
Ludwig Mies van der Rohe

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.
1 Brno Tubular Chair by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe

One of the first cantilevered chair designs to be produced, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe"s Brno Tubular Chair (1930) is the most elegant of its kind. The mirror-finish chromed tubular steel frame is fluidly bent into a sinuous single-piece form, which gracefully supports the sitter while seemingly defying gravity. A lengthy triple-plate chroming process ensures a resilient, rust-resistant mirror-quality finish.

Multiple available.
