Knoll MR Side Chair in Leather, Black at DWR

Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s MR Side Chair was designed in 1927 as part of his contribution to the Weissenhof exhibit in Stuttgart, Germany. The chair’s cantilevered design uses tubular steel, then a technological novelty, to create an intuitively accessible and ergonomic seat. (When asked why he created chairs with generously sized seats, Mies van der Rohe allegedly replied that he designs chairs he’d be most comfortable sitting in.) The MR Side Chair, still made to his specifications, is perfectly balanced, featuring the material innovation and lack of ornamentation that epitomize the International Style. It was awarded the Museum of Modern Art Award in 1977 and the Design Center Stuttgart Award in 1978. The frame of this piece is stamped with the KnollStudio logo and Mies van der Rohe’s signature. This is the authentic MR Side Chair produced by Knoll®. Made in U.S.A. Black Ludwig Mies van der Rohe: MR Side Chair in Leather.
