Such is the apparent simplicity of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe's MR10 chair, that looking at it from the front it is easy to think that it is made of a single and continuous piece of tubular steel.
The first 'free to float' seat, supported solely by the front leg, caused a real sensation when in 1927 the chair was exhibited in Stuttgart at the Die Wohung (La Dimora) exhibition, directed by Mies himself, and for which the important Weissenhof social housing settlement was created.
Since 1967, the MR10 has been produced by Knoll International.
The lot at auction consists of a set of 4 pieces made in the 1970s, which were sourced from a house in Milan.
The chairs are still in good condition. The structure, still perfectly robust, has a few small areas of oxidation. The leather, although worn and with signs of age, is still robust.
With Knoll sticker on three of the four chairs.
Dimensions: height 80 cm, width 50 cm, depth 64 cm.
