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.
 Van Der Rohe Brno Chairs

The first and still the most elegant of its kind, the Brno Chair by Mies van der Rohe is a masterpiece of structure. Designed in 1930 for the Tugendhat House in Brno, Czechoslovakia. Brilliance of form and function shown in the construction of these chairs represents the beginnings of an intensely creative period in architecture known as the “Bauhaus” period.
