Description from Design Within Reach
Designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, produced by Knoll
The Brno Flat Bar Chair (1930) from KnollStudio® is a masterpiece of structure, paying tribute to early modernism’s gravity-defying skyscrapers. Designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe to have a cantilevered base, the Brno offers the comfort of an armchair without the old-line stuffiness or bulk of upholstery. Weighty bar stock steel lends the chair its strength and boasts seamless joints and hidden hardware. A lengthy triple-plate chroming process ensures a resilient, rust-resistant mirror-quality finish. The padded seat is upholstered in supple full-grain Spinneybeck leather for long-enduring appearance retention and ease of maintenance-two especially important features for offices and waiting areas. Made in Italy.
Each piece is stamped with the KnollStudio logo and the designer’s signature. The Brno Flat Bar Chair is a registered trademark of Knoll, Inc., manufactured by Knoll according to the original and exacting specifications of the designer.
