"Architecture is a language; when you are very good you can be a poet." - Ludwig Mies Van der Rohe

While planning the Esters and Lange residences in Krefeld, Germany, modernist architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe conceived a restrained, emblematic lounge chair, ottoman and companion table, which embody the syntax, skill and diversity of his work. The Krefeld Collection, developed in consultation with the Museum of Modern Art in New York, is a "furniture suite" based on Mies original drawings from the Mies van der Rohe Archive. The beautifully proportioned pieces feature a lounge collection and an accompanying side and coffee table.

After working in his father's stonemasonry business and engaging furniture apprenticeships, Mies established his own office in Berlin, and later became a member of the Deutscher Werkbund and Director of the Bauhaus. He immigrated to the United States in 1938, setting up a practice in Chicago where he persued his architecture career and later became the director of architecture at the Institute of Technology in Chicago.

The Krefeld ottoman features ash hardwood legs stained in your choice of five finish options.

Mies Van Der Rohe

Mies van der Rohe sought to establish a new architectural style that could represent modern times. He strived towards a minimal framework of structural order balanced against the implied freedom of open space.
Knoll has remained true to the Bauhaus design philosophy that furniture should complement architectural space and not compete with it. Modernism is a passion at Knoll which results in ground breaking modern furniture.
