Attributed to Ludwig Mies van der Rohe Armchair ca. 1931 Chrome-plated tubular metal, stained laminated bent wood, stained wood. 28 7/8 in. (73.3 cm) high Possibly manufactured by Berliner Metallgewerbe Joseph Müller, Berlin.
Literature Ludwig Glaeser, Lugwig Mies van der Rohe: Furniture and Furniture Drawings from the Design Collection and the Mies van der Rohe Archive, The Museum of Modern Art, New York, 1977, p. 65, fig. 79 and pp. 66-67, figs. 80-83for similar examples by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe Catalogue Essay This rare armchair is the only example known to exist. When compared to Mies van der Rohe’s drawings from the 1930s of cantilever chairs with continuous or separate seat and back configurations, particularly fig. 81 as seen in Ludwig Glaeser’s book Ludwig Mies van der Rohe (The Museum of Modern Art, 1977) this armchair has similar lines and form. The finish and gauge of the tubular steel also suggest that it was produced by Mies’ manufacturer at the time, Berliner Metallgewerbe Joseph Müller, Berlin. Read More
