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

As a leading Modernist architect and furniture designer, Mies van der Rohe elevated industrial age materials to an art form. The elegant Four Seasons barstool, conceived in 1958 for the Four Seasons Restaurant in New York designed by Philip Johnson, was never mass produced. The classic barstool reflects Mies's signature spareness and features a lean profile, clean lines and meticulous craftsmanship. The bar height stool sports an upholstered seat with a hand buffed polished chrome frame.

Knoll is the only authorized and licensed manufacturer of the Van der Rohe collection. Mies van der Rohe's signature is stamped into the frame of each piece to guarantee authenticity.

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 Four Seasons Barstool features a chrome-plated or antiqued bronze (satin) solid steel frame and the seat can be upholstered in a wide range of KnollTextiles and Spinneybeck leathers.

Mies Van Der Rohe

Mies van der Rohe is a master of modern architecture. He 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.
