MR Chaise in Leather: New Materials and Shapes

The various models of MR chaise in leather represent a very interesting part of the production by the famous German architect and designer in the field of seats: Mies Van Der Rohe concentrated his furniture design production in chair and armchair. Mies Van Der Rohe developed various models with different dimensions and functions (starting from classic chairs, proceeding with cantilever chairs and arriving to comfortable armchair like the Barcelona chair).

Also in the chaise lounge field Mise Van Der Rohe didn’t made a single model, but made various models: every one of these models got unique characteristics that made them fit to various style of furniture. Indeed the models of
MR chaise in leather are four, the base model, the adjustable model, the long model without armrests and the long model with armrests.

Ludwig Mies van der Rohe (27 March 1886 - 17 August 1969) is one of the most influential architects of the 20th century, known for his role in the development of the most enduring architectural style of the era: modernism. Born in Aachen, Germany, Mies' career began in the influential studio of Peter Behrens, where Mies worked alongside other two other titans of modernism, Walter Gropius and Le Corbusier. 

For almost a century, Mies' minimalist style has proved very popular; his famous aphorism "less is more" is still widely used, even by those who are unaware of its origins Ludwig Mies van der Rohe's MR Chaise Lounge was designed in 1927 as part of his contribution to the Weissenhof exhibit in Stuttgart, Germany. 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 Chaise Lounge, still made to his specifications, is perfectly balanced, featuring the material innovation and lack of ornamentation that epitomize the International Style. Every different models of MR Chaise in leather was characterized  by the artistic intent of Mies Van Der Rohe: first of all to make a revolution in furniture concept, not only introducing new forms (all sober and functional following the canons of Modernis) but also introducing new materials in the furniture production.

Indeed the German designer in the production of the MR chaise in leather putted his attention to the using of steel: this material until that moment was utilized only in the industrial field, and Mies Van Der Rohe tried to put the steel out in a new way, the design furniture.

Indeed the framework of the various model of MR chaise in leather is made with  tubular steel: a light and elegant material, that gives more strength and resistance than the wood and at the same time Is flexible, so it can be bend to obtain wanted forms and lines.  And the various models of MR chaise in leather are solid and comfortable: if you choose one of this model for your home or office, you will find not only an elegant object, but also a comfortable and solid seat.
