Conceived by Mies van der Rohe in 1930 for the now legendary Tugendhat house in Brno, Czech Republic, this modern classic’s form reflects the spareness of Mies’ designs for the house and its interiors. An icon of 20th-century design, it is celebrated for its lean profile, clean lines and meticulous craftsmanship. The Brno chair is available in thin- and thick-seat versions, with hand-ground, hand-buffed stainless steel or mirror chrome frames. Knoll continues to produce each chair to Mies’ original specifications, thanks to a collaboration with the Mies van der Rohe Archives and the Museum of Modern Art, New York.
