Furniture brand Knoll — which was recently acquired by Herman Miller — has unveiled the latest expansion of its MR Collection, showcasing early designs by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. The collection includes a number of classic designs, such as the cantilevered Chaise Lounge and Lounge Chair, as well as the introduction of the new MR Stool.

The use of steel was inspired by Mies van der Rohe’s fellow Bauhaus designer Marcel Breuer, while he is believed to have been influenced by 19th century rocking chairs for the designs. All of the designs have their origins in the mid 1920s, with Mies van der Rohe and Mart Stam both working on a “chair without back legs” at this time. Mies van der Rohe would then go on to unveil the MR10 and MR20 chairs shortly afterwards, before developing an entire collection of tubular steel designs.

The MR Collection at Knoll boasts a number of chairs, chaise lounges and side tables, each of which features the iconic tubular steel aesthetic. The pieces are also available in a range of leathers and colors, ranging from classic black and white to eye-catching “Pumpkin,” “Toast” and “Nutmeg.”

All of the items in the MR Collection are available now from the Knoll web store, with prices ranging from $1472 USD for an armless MR Chair to $5337 for the MR Chaise Lounge.
