'MR 20' Armchair

Ludwig Mies van der Rohe
1927
Ref. 1010337

Bent nickel-plated tubular steel and original red painted cane.

The architect and designer Ludwig Mies van der Rohe is one of the best-known exponents of International Style Modernism. His "less-is-more“ philosophy has become a catchphrase for much twentieth-century design, though a preference for luxurious and costly materials often underscores the deceptive simplicity of his elegant and refined designs.

This graceful, elegant and beautifully proportioned MR20 chair, developed from a 1924 design for a cantilevered chair by Mart Stam, was introduced by Mies van der Rohe at the 1927 Stuttgart exhibition and has remained in production ever since.
