Knoll’s modernist MR armchair

Note all articles are independently researched and written by myself. However, if you buy via one of the links it may be an affiliate and I may earn a small commission.


Designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe as far back as 1920 and still very much a contemporary piece of design is the Knoll MR armchair.

The chair is built around the frame – tubular polished chrome, with the same chrome providing the armrests. The seating cantilevers over that base, with each section quilted and seamed into individual sections.

The signature of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe is stamped into the base of the chair, with each chair having an individual production number for identification and authenticity. Choose from black or white leather, both retailing for the hefty price tag of £2,925.
