Mies van der Rohe Pair of MR Lounge Chairs

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

The MR chair is one of our favorite designs by Mies. We think it best achieves his desire for elegant minimalism expertly crafted with luxurious materials. This model MR 30/5 is no longer produced by Knoll. It features a stainless steel tubular frame with a seat and back of saddle leather in a beautiful cognac color. We acquired this pair from the original owner who purchased them in 1976 and took great care of them. They are in immaculate condition.
