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.


Pair of vintage Barcelona lounge chairs designed by Mies van der Rohe for Knoll. These chairs feature a rare brass frame. Seat and back cushions adapt to fit curve of frame, which is welded in single-piece construction from single brass block for ultimate durability. This chair is upholstered in a leather. Please take note that the leather color is less yellow and in worse condition than it appears in these pictures. This timeless design will be a perfect addition to a modern space.
