Mies van der Rohe Rattan and Chrome MR20 Chair

Item Description

This chair’s deceptively simple design embodies the “less is more” philosophy of Mies van der Rohe. The ultra-modern chrome finish sharply contrasts with the natural woven-cane seat and back, creating a streamlined appearance that exemplifies industrial technology and the spirit of modernity in the early 20th century. Nice early example bought by the original owner at the well known Metz & Co store in Amsterdam in the 1950s.
