Brno Chair by Knoll, Tubular Frame with Thin Seat and Back
designed by Mies van der Rohe
The Brno Chair is one of the greatest and most famous chairs of all time. Designed by the legendary Mies van der Rohe in Brno, Czechoslovakia, the chair is meant to reflect the simplicity of the environment. In the early part of the century, when the Brno Chair was first created, this was a revolutionary idea. A single, elegantly bent steel tube acts as both leg, arm, and support for the chair. The seat hangs within the frame created by the steel bar, the seat back set a little lower than usual. The choice of upholstery is the users, with leather and fabric available.
Mies van der Rohe began his career in Berlin, working at the Bauhaus, before fleeing to the United States in 1938. He ended his career in Chicago, working at the Institute of Technology there.

About The Manufacturer
|Ludwig Mies van der Rohe is one of the most significant designers of the modern era. Born in Germany in 1886, van der Rohe began a career in architecture and interior in an era that challenged traditional concepts of aesthetics and design. Rejected classical, cluttered notions of beauty, he was a proponent of clean, efficient lines expressed using industrial materials. This design movement gained ground after World War I, but Mies van der Rohe was forced to move to the United States in 1937 due to political pressure from the Nazis, who rejected his new ideas on art and architecture. He took a position as head of architecture in Chicago at the Armour Institute of Technology, now known as the Illinois Institute of Technology. His career in the United States spanned 30 years and saw him create numerous standout buildings in the Chicago area. He is perhaps best remembered today for his inspiring furniture designs.|
