About the Designer
Ludwig Mies van der Rohe Ludwig Mies van der Rohe Germany (1866 - 1969)

Ludwig Mies van der Rohe began his career working in his father's stonemasonry business. After an apprenticeship with furniture designer Bruno Paul in Berlin, he joined the office of architect Peter Behrens, whose work presaged the modern movement. In 1912, Mies established his own office in Berlin, and later became a member of the Deutscher Werkbund and Director of the Bauhaus. He immigrated to the United States in 1938, setting up a practice in Chicago. His buildings include the German Pavilion for the 1929 Barcelona Exposition, the Tugendhat Villa in Brno, Czechoslovakia, the Seagram Building, designed with Philip Johnson, a cluster of residential towers along Chicago's Lakeshore Drive in Chicago, and the Illinois Institute of Technology campus, where he was the director of architecture.

Inspired by the lines of tubular iron rockers designed in Europe during the mid-19th century, Mies van der Rohe elevated industrial materials to art. ''Form is not the aim of our work. It is the result,'' wrote Mies van der Rohe. The result here is the ultra stylish and sleek modern MR Chair. One part sculpture, one part chair, you'll be surprised at how comfortable this piece really is. The Design Influenced by fellow modern designer, Marcel Breuer and his use of tubular steel, Mies van der Rohe realized the compatibility of this revolutionary material with the contemporary design ethos. Mies expanded upon a similar style of tubular steel rocking chairs, incorporating new material and a new technology in the use of the cantilever principle. Upholstered in soft cowhide leather, the MR Chair is the epitome of class. Both beautiful and elegant, the MR Chair is the ultimate statement in modern design. Honored with The Museum of Modern Art Award in 1977 and the Design Center Stuttgart Award in 1978, each chair features the KnollStudio logo and signature of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe stamped in the base. In addition, the MR Chair is GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certified.
