Mies van der Rohe 236 Side Chair
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 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 a side chair or an arm chair. Made in Italy.
