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.

An iconic piece from the incredibly creative Bauhaus period of design, this Mies van der Rohe Flatbar Brno chair is flatbar style and comes in a green fabric. With flatbar chromium-plated steel frames so reflective they are essentially mirrored. An absolutely stunning work of modern design and art by one of the Bauhaus great masters. We have over several others available, in varying colors of fabric and leather, including black leather, green fabric or blue fabric.
