Design by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, 1927.
By Knoll.

This 1927 design icon features tubular steel with cantilevered seating from the mind of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. Inspired by the lines of tubular iron rockers designed in Europe during the mid-19th century, Mies incorporated a new material and a new technology in the use of the cantilever principle. The MR Chair is a sublime example of the designer's rational approach to design and the aphorism that "less is more". With minimal materials, this chair makes a grand statement. The chair is available with or without arms and in three supple cowhide colors.

Awards include The Museum of Modern Art, New York, USA, 1977 and Design Center Stuttgart Award, W. Germany 1978.
