The MR 10 Chair, originally designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe in 1927. This chair’s deceptively simple design embodies the “less is more” philosophy of Mies van der Rohe. The ultra-modern chrome finish sharply contrasts with the natural woven-cane seat and back, creating a streamlined appearance that exemplifies industrial technology and the spirit of modernity. Favored for its strength, lightness, and economic practicality, tubular-steel furniture became widely popular in the 1920s. The material’s attributes made it well suited for this cantilevered design, which functions without the support of back legs. The zebra pillows are the perfect complement to the chrome-plated steel and rattan seats.
