Influenced by Marcel Breuer's use of tubular steel, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe quickly recognized the compatibility of this revolutionary material with the contemporary design ethos.
Inspired by the lines of tubular iron rockers designed in Europe during the mid-19th century, Mies incorporated a new material and a new technology in the use of the cantilever principle. The MR Collection of tubular steel lounge furniture includes the MR side chair, arm and armless lounge chair, chaise lounge, and adjustable chaise lounge.
KnollStudio logo and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe's signature are stamped into the base of each lounge.
