Designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe in 1927, this innovative chair is among some of the earliest designs using a cantilevered seat frame. The sweeping chrome tubular frame supports a thick full-grain leather seat and back. The effect is one of airy lightness and sleek modernity. Appreciated by collectors throughout the world this chair is a classic of 20th century modern furniture. It compliments all other designs by Mies van der Rohe including his day bed, scissors chair and coffee table. Highly versatile, the 236 B arm chair may be used as a dining chair or occasional chair in either spare minimalist interiors or paired with antiques for a highly sophisticated look. This chair is also available with a rattan seat for a less formal, more organic appeal. Available as an arm chair or a side chair. Made in Italy.
