Design by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, 1930.
By Knoll.

A simple profile, clean lines and meticulous attention to detail have made Ludwig Mies van der Rohe's 1930 Brno Chair an icon of 20th-Century design.

Conceived by Mies van der Rohe in 1930 for the now legendary Tugendhat house in Brno, Czech Republic, this modern classic's form reflects the spare-ness of Mies's designs for the house and its interiors. Knoll continues to produce each chair to Mies's original specifications, thanks to a collaboration with the Mies van der Rohe Archives and the Museum of Modern Art, New York.

The Flat Bar Brno Chair features a frame in 304 bar stock stainless steel which is hand-grained and hand-buffed to a mirror finish. There are no visible connections between the seat and frame. Offered in Stainless Steel or Mirrored Chrome finish. The Brno seat and back are constructed of durable hardwood and cushioned with variable density foam. Dymetrol seat suspension enhances the chair's comfort level. Optional glides can be purchased and are recessed in the base of the frame (sold separately, see options).

This modern masterpiece was awarded a space in The Museum of Modern Art, New York, USA, 1977.
