MR Side Chair by Knoll
designed by Mies van der Rohe
The MR Side Chair is an adjustment of the famed MR Chaise Lounge and MR Lounge Chair. Smaller is scale and with less material, the MR Side Chair retains the essential design of the other chairs in the series. Constructed of tubular steel fashioned into a cantilevered support system, and featuring wide leather straps as the back and seat, the MR Side Chair shows it's DNA, the iconic Wassily Chair by fellow German Marcel Breuer.
About the Designer
|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.|
