This set of two black leather MR10 cantilever chairs was designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and produced by Knoll International. The frame was made of tubular chrome-plated steel. These chairs are a design icon being one of the very first cantilever design chairs ever designed by van der Rohe. Comfortable and perfectly balanced they have become one of the most enduring designs of the 20th Century with manufacturing starting in 1927. Originally known as the Weissenhof chair (after the exhibition it was first launched at) and produced by Gebrüder Thonet within Europe, the license to produce the chairs in the U.S. was later acquired by Knoll International who started production in the late 1950s. One of them was labeled by Knoll under the seat. This model is recognised by the lace back and seat base which along with the offset chrome seat stretcher and small rear back slide stop hooks are key signatures of Knoll’s original production method.
These chairs are in original vintage condition with natural patina, minor scrapes.
