Feature this piece in your dining room, office or anywhere you need a touch of elegant, minimalist modernism. A classic example of Mies’ innovative design aesthetic, the stunning and unusual Brno Chair certainly proves that less is indeed more.

The Designer

Mies van der Rohe

Mies van der Rohe

The designer of one of the most prevalent and recognizable mid-century pieces, Mies van der Rohe (1886 – 1969) and his Barcelona chair have been well loved for decades. The German American visionary was a pioneer of modern architecture as well as furniture, inspiring countless buildings and reproductions during his long career. 

Famous for adhering to his favorite quotes, “Less is more” and “God is in the details,” van der Rohe was known for his use of industrial steel, glass and minimal silhouettes. It was commonly referred to as “skin and bones” architecture. This approach carried over to his products as well. The Barcelona chair series and Brno Chair are modern expressions of leather, chrome and strong structure. 

Van der Rohe was an incredibly influential man whose products are arguably at the forefront of mid-century design.

Customers Reviews

We are using four of these

Nolan - Verified Buyer - (5/5)
We are using four of these chairs with the Saarinen 79" oval table and we love them. They look fantastic and are so very comfortable. Well made and good looking. My husband is tall and we spent a great deal of time sitting on different dining chairs in the showroom, most were not accommodating of his long legs. But these are perfect. Be careful when you lean forward in them though as they can kind of tip outward!
