Knoll | MR Chaise Lounge

Design by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, 1929.
By Knoll. 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 this Chaise. The enduring design features an exaggerated s-curve with suspended seating that is at once grounding and gravity-defying. Supportive comfort defines the form constructed of leather belting straps and leather upholstery. Leather is crafted in a series of quilted and seamed cushion sections. Black cowhide belting straps with front, back, and sides all stained. For all other colors, upholstery is sandwiched to belting thickness on both front and back, with sides left natural. Select your leather choice from an offering of five Spinneybeck leather grades in hundreds of colors.
