This 1927 design icon features chrome-plated tubular steel with cantilever seating from the mind of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. Mies incorporated a new material and a new technology in the use of the cantilever principle. Mies van der Rohe began his career in architecture in Berlin, in the mid-1920s, later he began to design furniture, pieces that he conceived and created for particular interiors. In 1927, he met Lilly Reich, a Bauhaus alumnus who collaborated with Mies on his first versions of a cantilevered chair with a tubular steel frame. The cantilevered chair had a curved frame that exploited the aesthetic, as well as the structural possibilities of this material.
These beautiful MR10 Chairs were produced in the 1960s. They come in strong Chocolate Brown Saddle leather, this color is quite rare and the leather is in very good condition. The set has a nice patina with normal wear. Beautiful and rare set.
