This set of four MR10 cantilever chairs, were designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe circa 1930 and crafted by an unknown manufacturer in Italy around 1970's. Inspired by Marcel Breuer's chairs, Mies van der Rohe replaced the right angles on the front legs with a graceful curve which had the advantage of increasing elasticity.
Ludwig Mies van der Rohe (1886–1969) was a German-American architect who, alongside Le Corbusier, Walter Gropius, and Frank Lloyd Wright, is considered one of the pioneers of modern architecture. Known for his minimalist approach and use of modern materials, Mies van der Rohe's designs embody the spirit of the modern era, and his iconic buildings have left an indelible mark on the architectural landscape.
Mies, like many of his post-World War I contemporaries, sought to establish a new architectural style that could represent Modern Times just as Classical and Gothic did for their own eras. He created an influential 20th century architectural style, stated with extreme clarity and simplicity. His mature buildings made use of modern materials such as Industrial steel and plate glass to define interior spaces. He strove toward an architecture with a minimal framework of structural order balanced against the implied freedom of free-flowing open space. He called his buildings "skin and bones" architecture.
This set is in original and good vintage condition, with minor wear consistent with age and use, with some stains in the leather, preserving a beautiful patina.
