Mies Van Der Rohe MR20 Armchair Leather Chrome Cantilever Chair Tan Leather MCM

Mies Van Der Rohe MR20 Armchair Leather Chrome Cantilever Chair Tan Leather MCM

A gorgeous and very rare Ludwig Mies van der Rohe MR20 tan leather and tubular chrome armchair. Designed by Modernist supremo Mies (van der Rohe), it was likely made in the 1970s and will add stunning minimalist curves, comfort and flair to any interior.


Made of chromed tubular steel, the MR20 features a cantilever design and has overarching arms for the ultimate sleek Bauhaus look. It has a broad tan leather seat and matching back with black stitching and is a joy to sit in and gently rock using the cantilever design.


Mies van der Rohe was one of the godfathers of Modernism and was the last director of the Bauhaus design institute. His MR20 armchair is exhibited in the Museum Of Modern Art and remains one of the quintessential Modernist Bauhaus designs. Rare and elegant, these Mid Century Modernist beauties quite rightly command huge sums.


We also have an MR20 armchair in black leather, please see our other listings. 



This is in good condition with signs of repair. Structurally sound, the lovely quality leather is in good condition and has a few to-be-expected marks to show its age. The chrome has been cleaned and polished and has some to-be-expected marks and the chair has had a break in the past with a previous owner when three people sat on the chair together, after which the legs were welded to make it structurally sound again. Structurally, it has no issues now and is probably stronger than originally and just shows the signs of the welding towards the bottom of the front legs, which could probably be re-chromed. Overall it’s a wonderful and rare chair in very usable condition and if well looked after it should remain just as stunning for many more generations to come – please see the photos.



Height – 81.5cm, Width – 55.5cm, Depth - 82cm, Seat Height – 41.5cm, Seat Width - 45cm, Seat Depth (leather) - 37cm, Weight - 11kg.
