B 42 ChairLudwig Mies van der Rohe $2,136.00
Ludwig Mies van der Rohe created the iconic B 42 chair in 1927. Its cantilevered tubular steel construction is a tour de force of modern design. The chair reflects the shift from traditional craft-built furniture design to industrial produced products intended for mass production that was taking place in the 1920s. The B 42 is both visually stunning and comfortable. The molded steel construction and exclusive, Tecta natural cane wickerwork produce a great tactile feel and just the right amount of spring when seated. The B 42 is produced to exacting standards by Tecta in Germany and, unlike inferior imitations, is an authentic, fully licensed design of investment-grade quality.

Ludwig Mies van der Rohe's buildings and furniture designs have attained legendary status as icons of modern design. According to Peter Smithson, "No other men have succeeded as have Le Corbusier and Mies van der Rohe in building complete systems. Their concentration is such that the nature of their systems is implicit even in the fragment. One has, for example, a perfectly clear notion of the sort of city and the sort of society envisaged by Mies van der Rohe, even though he has never said much about it. It is not an exaggeration to say that the Miesian city is implicit in the Mies chair."
