Ludwig Mies van der Rohe Chair & Furniture Collection
Mies van der Rohe is acknowledged as one of the leading members of modern architecture and design in the mid century period, along with contemporaries like Frank Lloyd Wright and Le Corbusier. Van der Rohe adhered to a vision of open spaces, newly used materials like steel and minimalism. He took projects at the Illinois Institute of Technology and headed the architecture program. He was also contracted for works like the Farnsworth House and the Neue Nationalgalerie museum. His furniture is one of his most lasting contributions to the time. The Barcelona series and BRNO Chair are distinctive pieces that represent his belief in pared down, quality, modern design.
