Classic Mies van der Rohe flat bar BRNO in black leather
Designed by Mies for his renowned Tugendhat House in Brno, Czech Republic, this chair - with its lean profile, clean lines and meticulous attention to detail - reflects the groundbreaking simplicity of its original environment.
Tugendhat House, often considered to be Mies van der Rohe’s defining residential work, is the summation of his ideas incorporated at every level of the design. Architectural historian Peter Blake explains in his book Master Builders: “As in every one of his designs, from skyscrapers to dining chairs, Mies reduces each object to its essential elements, and then refined each detail to a point of almost breathtaking beauty and eloquence. There was nothing in this house that did not reflect this process of distillation to the point of utter perfection — not a window mullion, not a heating pipe, not a lighting fixture, not an ashtray.”
