The MR Collection represents some of the earliest steel furniture designs by Mies van der Rohe. Four examples of the MR side table were included in the famous Tugendhat house. The design has been manufactured by Knoll since 1977.

“Form is not the aim of our work. It is the result,” wrote Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. His approach to architecture and design was based on the philosophy of “no trivial decoration.” The MR table, which incorporates tubular and rectangular steel, reflects this pure and simple design concept — at once functional and formal, the piece displays an awareness of proportion, detailing and craftsmanship, and a richness and integrity of materials.

van-der-rohe-ludwig-mies.jpg

Regarded as one of the most important figures in the history of architecture, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s ‘less-is-more’ approach to design was the gold standard for many generations of modern architecture. His legendary career started humbly at his father’s stonemasonry business, giving him an early appreciation of material and structure. From there he apprenticed with furniture designer Bruno Paul in Berlin before joining the office of Peter Behrens, an architect and painter at the forefront of the modern movement.

In 1912, Mies established his own office in Berlin. Through furniture, residential projects and extraordinary, yet unrealized concepts for skyscrapers, he gained recognition as a leader of the German modern movement. As such, he was selected to design the German Pavilion at the 1929 International Exposition in Barcelona.

Mies served as Vice President of the Deutsher Werkbund and Director of the Bauhaus from 1930 until it closed in 1933. He immigrated to the United States in 1938 to become the director of architecture at the Armour Institute (later the Illinois Institute of Technology). From his Chicago-based practice, Mies designed a portfolio of buildings that changed the face of American institutional architecture ― the most notable examples being the IIT campus and the Seagram Building in New York.
