  • Catalogue Essay

    This rare armchair is the only example known to exist.  When compared to Mies van der Rohe’s drawings from the 1930s of cantilever chairs with continuous or separate seat and back configurations, particularly fig. 81 as seen in Ludwig Glaeser’s book Ludwig Mies van der Rohe (The Museum of Modern Art, 1977) this armchair has similar lines and form.  The finish and gauge of the tubular steel also suggest that it was produced by Mies’ manufacturer at the time, Berliner Metallgewerbe Joseph Müller, Berlin.



ca. 1931
Chrome-plated tubular metal, stained laminated bent wood, stained wood.
28 7/8 in. (73.3 cm) high
