  • Set of 4 "MR" armchairs by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe
    Set of 4 "MR" armchairs by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe

    Set of 4 “MR” armchairs by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe

    ,
    Set of 4 "MR" armchairs by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. The armchairs are made of tubular steel and black natural leather and are preserved in a very good shape. The architect and designer Ludwig Mies van der Rohe is one of the best-known exponents of International Style modernism. His "less-is-more" philosophy has become a catchphrase for much twentieth-century design, though a preference for luxurious and costly materials often underscores the deceptive simplicity of his elegant and refined designs. Mies van der Rohe was the last director of the Bauhaus design school in Dessau, from 1930 until its closing in 1932. In 1938 he left Germany for America, where he headed the architecture department at the Illinois Institute of Technology. The graceful, elegant, and beautifully proportioned "MR" armchair, developed from a 1924 design for a cantilevered chair by Mart Stam, was introduced by Mies van der Rohe at the 1927 Stuttgart exhibition and has remained in production ever since. The chair’s cantilevered design uses tubular steel, then a technological novelty, to create an intuitively accessible and ergonomic seat. (When asked why he created chairs with generously sized seats, Mies van der Rohe allegedly replied that he designs chairs he’d be most comfortable sitting in.) The MR Armchair is perfectly balanced, featuring the material innovation and lack of ornamentation that epitomize the International Style. It was awarded the Museum of Modern Art Award in 1977 and the Design Center Stuttgart Award in 1978. In 1968 the Knoll group took the license to manufacture these chairs but both before 1968 and afterwards many factories have in fact produced these iconic pieces.

  • Pair of Gemla Möbler chairs
    Pair of Gemla Möbler chairs

    Pair of Gemla Möbler chairs made in Sweeden, in the 1980

    ,
    Pair of Swedish Gemla Mobler chairs. The structure and the armrests - made of curved wood - give a natural, organic and pleasant shape. This is completed in a beautiful way by the wool upholstery, in a shade of green that is specific for the Mid-Century furniture. This chairs can fit any nice interior, having the ability to create a warm atmosphere in the room. The chairs are in very good shape with only few age-related traces. At Helge River in Diö, in the heart of the old forests of Småland, lies Sweden's oldest furniture factory (founded in 1861). Its inner sanctum, beech and ash are tamed into time- less furniture by skilled craftsmen who know which way the wood likes to bend. Stretching and flexing, easing and teasing, until the steaming hot wood finds its form. And the wood will not be rushed. The transformation from log into chair takes days, sometimes even weeks. The technique has been used by boat and fence builders since ancient times but was refined in the mid 1800's by Thonet into the iconic chair, worn my millions of seats in the cafés of Europe. The shape is determined by the best and the brightest of their time. Back then their names were Peter Celsing, Yngve Ekström, Sigurd Lewerentz and Carl Malmsten. Now they are Jonas Bohlin, Front, Lisa Hilland and Mats Theselius.

It is in its original condition and displays all the major characteristics of International Style / Mid-Century design, alongside with reminiscences of Stile Liberty and Art Deco. An exquisite piece, resembling a bouquet of tulips. The chandelier is kept in good condition. Italy's Stile Liberty took its name from the British department store Liberty, the colorful textiles of which were particularly popular in Italy. Notable Italian designers included Galileo Chini, whose ceramics were inspired both by majolica patterns and by Art Nouveau. He was later known as a painter and a scenic designer; he designed the sets for two Puccini operas Gianni Schicchi and Turnadot. The Teatro Massimo in Palermo, by the architect Ernesto Basile, is an example of the Italian variant of the style, architectural style, which combined Art Nouveau and classical elements. The most important figure in Italian Art Nouveau furniture design was Carlo Bugatti, the son of an architect and sculptor, and brother of the famous automobile designer. He studied at the Milanese Academy of Brera, and later the Académie des Beaux-Arts in Paris. His work was distinguished by its exoticism and eccentricity, included silverware, textiles, ceramics, and musical instruments, but he is best remembered for his innovative furniture designs, shown first in the 1888 Milan Fine Arts Fair. His furniture often featured a keyhole design, and had unusual coverings, including parchment and silk, and inlays of bone and ivory. It also sometimes had surprising organic shapes, copied after snails and cobras.
