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

Designed in 1930 for the Tugendhat house in Brno, Czechoslovakia, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe's Brno Chair mirrors the groundbreaking simplicity of its original environment. The Chair is available in two versions: the Brno Tugendhat (thin seat/back) and the Brno Classic (thick seat/back). Chairs are available in Stainless Steel or Mirror Chrome finish.

An icon of 20th-century design, the Brno Chair is celebrated for its lean profile, clean lines and meticulous craftsmanship. Available in thin- and thick-seat versions, with hand-ground, hand-buffed stainless steel frames. The Tubular Brno Chair features a frame of tubular pre-stressed, pre-buffed 14 gauge stainless steel or 11 gauge steel with mirror chrome finish. Clean, seamless joints and hidden drilled or countersunk holes (as opposed to punched) render the chair free of deformation. The mirror chrome-plating process includes lengthy nickel and silicone coatings for rust protection and increased durability. An inner hardwood frame is cushioned with variable density foam. And Dymetrol seat suspension enhances the comfort level. Optional glides can be purchased and are placed in specially drilled holes in the base of the frame (sold separately, see options). Select Mirror Chrome or Stainless Steel finish, with or without optional glides. Then select upholstery textile and color. Also offered in a Flat Bar frame version.
