Black Leather Mies Van Der Rohe Original Knoll BRNO Chair
An unarguable classic, here we have an original Mies Van Der Rohe BRNO cantilevered steel chair in black leather and with tubular frame. Designed in 1929 for Fritz and Grete Tugendhat’s Czechoslovakian house in Brno, this chair is accredited to Van Der Rohe but Knoll’s Albert Pfeiffer suggests that Van Der Rohe did not fully develop any contemporary furniture until partnering with Lilly Reich, who helped with designing the Tugendhat’s house.
Constructed from its singular steel frame and leather upholstered seat, the chair was originally designed to be used in the bedroom, but its effortless and comfortable design means it will work as an office chair or alternative lounge chair. The continued production of this iconic design proves how reliable, versatile and comfortable this chair is. This particular example encompasses this and will prove to live up to the standards Van Der Rohe’s work expects to provide.
The leather is in good condition, as is the steel tubular frame, but as an original example, natural wear with age is expected. With some gentle cleaning, this chair will look as glorious as the day it was produced.
Van Der Rohe’s work has always garnered interest and this gorgeous example of the BRNO chair does not disappoint. With interest still strong, this chair should prove to be a great investment.
