Vintage Bauhaus Mid Century MR 20 Arm Chairs by Mies van der Rohe for Stendig
Ask a Question
This pair of vintage Mies van der Rohe MR20 cantilevered cane arm chairs made by Stendig are circa 1970. The MR chair was designed by modernist architect Mies van der Rohe in 1927 as part of his contribution to the Weissenhof exhibit in Stuttgart, Germany and was awarded the Museum of Modern Art Award in 1977 and the Design Center Stuttgart Award in 1978. These iconic Bauhaus cantilever chairs feature clean lines, a simple profile and a lack of ornamentation that epitomizes the International Style. The chair’s cantilevered design used chrome-plated tubular steel – an innovative technology at the time – paired with handwoven natural cane for the perfect balance of contrasting materials and an intuitively accessible and ergonomic seat. Tags on underside of chairs read Stendig. These versatile and timeless chairs pair well with a wide range of decor. Perfect for home or office.
Excellent vintage condition with wear consistent with age and use.
