Conceived by Mies van der Rohe in 1930 for the now legendary Tugendhat house in Brno, Czech Republic, this modern classic’s form reflects the spareness of Mies’ designs for the house and its interiors. An icon of 20th-century design, it is celebrated for its lean profile, clean lines and meticulous craftsmanship. Knoll continues to produce each chair to Mies’ original specifications, thanks to a collaboration with the Mies van der Rohe Archives and the Museum of Modern Art, New York. The chair is available with tubular or flat bar frame.
