MR Side Chair

Designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, 1929 

The MR Collection represents some of the earliest steel furniture designs by Mies van der Rohe. The material choice was inspired by fellow Bauhaus master Marcel Breuer, while the forms are thought to be modern derivatives of 19th century iron rocking chairs. 



Tubular steel was the catalyst for the extensive experiments in cantilevered seating that resulted in Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s germinal MR Collection of 1927-29. The KnollStudio logo and the signature of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe are stamped into the base of the chair. 


Frame made of tubular polished chrome finish with a thick cowhide sling seat with leather laces. 


Available in three shades of cowhide: black, light brown and white-beige. 

Frame in polished chrome finish. 


Armless Chair: 49cm W x 69cm D x 79cm H with seat height of 46cm. 

MR Side Chair will soon be available in our internet store.
