A masterpiece of modern chair design. Inspired by the tubular frame seating of Mart Stam, Mies infuses the cantilever principle with an unmatched grace and proportion. This chair illustrates the earliest production variation displaying a bolt connecting the leg sections at the floor, and a unique connection of the armrest to the curved leg.
