About

The definition of minimalism in a singular design, achieved by the great Ludwig Mies van der Rohe in 1929; the Brno Flat-Bar Chair is just that. Montage has edited these contemporary iteration authentic originals in a way that’s never been done before. Montage has been restoring Brno Flat-Bar Chairs for years right in our very own workroom. The chairs shown feature a rich velvet from our extensive fabric collection in the color Dove. These “refined originals” evolve Mies’ famed 1929 design with a glistening Obsidian Gloss powder-coated finish on their frame, a process which achieves an incredibly durable coating that will outlast countless generations to come. This finish, offered exclusively by Montage, takes this design classic to the next level and celebrates it as the art form it truly is. Each chair retains its mark of authenticity under the arm indicating “Knoll Studio” accompanied by Mies van der Rohe’s signature. Montage's Brno Flat-Bar Chairs are available in any quantity and can be upholstered using our wide selection fabrics & leathers and of course COM. Feel free to contact Montage to request a swatch of material in your desired color. These are always upholstered and powder coated to-order ensuring excellence in quality with every piece. Aside from the shown “Obsidian Gloss” finish, Montage also offers Brno Flat-Bar Chairs in stainless steel (early iterations) as well as chromed steel (newer iterations). The exclusive “Obsidian Gloss/Matte” & “Lunar Gloss/Matte” finishes have added lead times to ensure perfection, worth the wait.

About Knoll (Manufacturer)

As a company that produced many of the most famous and iconic furniture designs of the 20th century, Knoll was a chief influence in the rise of modern design in the United States. Led by Florence Knoll, the firm would draw stellar talents such as Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Eero Saarinen into its compass. Their work would help change the face of the American home and office.


     The company was formed in 1938 by the German immigrant Hans Knoll. He first worked with his fellow ex-pat, the Danish designer Jens Risom, who created furniture with flowing lines made of wood. While Risom served in World War II, in 1943 Knoll met his future wife, Florence Schust. She had studied and worked with eminent emigré leaders of the Bauhaus, including Mies, Walter Gropius and Marcel Breuer. She won Knoll over with Bauhaus notions of industrial arts, and an aesthetic that featured flat and tubular metal frames and angular forms. When Hans died in a car crash in 1955, Florence Knoll was appointed head of the company. It was as much through her holistic approach to design—a core division of the firm was dedicated to planning office systems—as Knoll furnishings themselves that she brought about the sleek and efficient transformation of the American workplace.


     Today, classic Knoll furnishings remain staples of modern design collections and decors. A history of modern design is written in pieces such as Mies’ elegant Barcelona Chair, Saarinen’s pedestal Tulip chair, Breuer’s tubular steel Wassily chair and the grid-patterned Diamond chair by Harry Bertoia. As you can see from the items on the following pages, these designs and others have become timeless emblems of the progressive spirit and sleek sophistication of the best of Modernism.
