A set of 4 vintage Mies van der Rohe Knoll, MR50 BRNO tubular chrome and black fabric dining chairs. The price listed is for the 4 chairs as shown.


Designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe at his Tugendhat House in Brno, Czech Republic, the Brno Chair (model number MR50) reflects the ground breaking simplicity of van der Rohe’s design using a simple cantilever frame. There are two versions of the chair; one in tubular steel and the other in flat steel and the original design dates back to 1930. The metal was originally polished stainless steel but more modern examples from around the 1970s onwards were produced in chromed steel by Knoll International and Knoll Studio who have owned the license to the design since the mid 1960s.


There have been numerous copies of the chairs made since their inception but the Knoll original chairs that were produced in the last 30 years have become much easier to recognise. As such, all post 1990 chairs have the stamped Knoll branding and van der Rohe signature in the chrome work and Knoll branded material used on the underside of the chair.

The 4 offered here are in very good vintage condition with just a few small marks in the fabric and some light scratches to the top of the arms and around the base of the frame just as you would expect. They date from the early 90s and all have the Knoll branding present on each chair.


The original chair also comes in a range of seat firmness foams and these are have been upholstered in the thicker, more comfortable option which makes them ideal as a dining chair or as an office meeting room or conference chair.
