MR Chair

  • Color
  • Arms
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. By reducing the chair to its main parts and reconfiguring their relation to each other—clearly delineating the leather seat and back supports from the metal frame—he arrived at a fluid, refined cantilever form.

When it debuted, the chair was both lauded for its aesthetic accomplishments and laughed at for its aeronautical tendencies: the chair would propel the sitter forward should he try to stand up. This has since been fixed.

Available in 3 Spinneybeck® cowhide belting leathers: Black, Light Brown and White Beige. Leather laces wrap around the frame to connect the seat slings to the frame, which is seamless tubular stainless steel with a polished finish. Four molded plastic glides with twin-pin snap-in construction included. Available with or without arms.
