The Hot Seat: Mies van der Rohe’s MR chair

Designer Mies van der Rohe’s MR chair (1927) – thought to be the modern representation of 19th-century iron rocking chairs – reduced the chair to its distinct, essential parts, arriving at a uniquely light and elegant delineated silhouette.

With its exemplary craftsmanship, luxurious leather seat and back supports, and fluid tubular steel frame, the MR chair from KnollStudio offers a touch of refined yet contemporary glamour.

Now available from Minima Dublin (€950),
