Concept

"The Tubular Steel Cantilever Chair S 533– Uniting Timeless Elegance with Comfortable Seating

The targeted restriction in the use of materials, elegance in the lines and transparency in the effect are the characteristic properties of the S 533. It owes its special comfort to constant elastic flexing. This effect results from the fact that Mies van der Rohe conceived the front part of the tubular steel frame as a big bow made of spring-hard tubular steel. While most of the designs from the 1920s were rather simple and functional, this chair clearly communicates the signature of the architect: his design combines functionality and comfort with timeless aesthetics. The chair was first presented in the Weissenhof-Siedlung in 1927.

Without armrests. Frame chrome plated tubular steel. Seat and backrest with wicker. Also available in black natural bend leather with lacing on backrest."
