Made in Italy by Knoll. Rarely sat on in my home, mostly furniture art.
Both chairs are labeled and tagged Knoll. After working in his father's stonemasonry business and engaging furniture apprenticeships, 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 where he persued his architecture career and later became the director of architecture at the Institute of Technology in Chicago. Influenced by Marcel Breuer's use of tubular steel, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe quickly recognized the compatibility of this revolutionary material with the contemporary design ethos. Inspired by the lines of tubular iron rockers designed in Europe during the mid-19th century, Mies incorporated a new material and a new technology in the use of the cantilever principle. The MR Collection of tubular steel lounge furniture includes the MR chairs, chaise lounge, and adjustable chaise lounge.
Leather seat pads are excellent, with no cuts or rips, leather belting straps are not lose and have no breaks or tears, only slight signs of wear around side edges of certain straps. Stainless steel frame in excellent condition, no dents or gouges, only light surface scratches, with a bit more scratching to bottom that touches floor, which is expected.See photos for more condition details.
