Van der rohe Canteliver Armchair rush bank

This graceful, elegant, and beautifully proportioned Cantilever armchair, is just one more example of the 'less-is-more' philosophy of the modernist Ludwig van der Rohe - the preference for luxurious and costly materials often underscoring the deceptive simplicity of his elegant and refined designs. This chair, developed from a 1924 design for a cantilevered armchair by Mart Stam, was introduced by Mies van der Rohe at the 1927 Stuttgart exhibition and has remained in production ever since.

ItaliaDesigns produces this design with high quality chromed tubular structure with rush bank.

About the Designer

Van Der Rohe

Van Der Rohe

Widely regarded as one of the pioneering masters of modern architecture, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe inherits the title as the ‘Father of Bauhaus’ for his intensely modernist vision and art deco form of expression. Born in Aachen in Germany in 1886, Mies sought to establish a new architectural style representative of modern times, similar to the impact Classical and Gothic conjured for their own eras. He constructed an influential and inspirational twentieth century architectural style, stated with extreme clarity and simplicity.

Bound by the ethos of ‘less is more’, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe created aesthetically compelling work, simple in appearance yet holding a unique beauty to any observer or art lover. Expanding his craft from architecture to furniture design, German-born Mies undertook the majority of his career living in the United States, before his passing in Chicago, 1969.

The influence and inspiration generated by Mies resonates to this day and his work is championed and celebrated on a worldwide scale. The Ludwig Mies van der Rohe Archive, an administratively independent section within the department of architecture and design at MoMA New York, was established in 1968 by the museum's trustees, while the National Gallery in Berlin and Museum of Fine Arts in Houston are among some remaining examples of his architecture, testament to his significance.
