MI76 | High stool
High steel stool
Stool with chromed flat bar steel frame. Seat in self-supporting foam with non removable covering in leather. Philip Johnson, who cooperated with Mies to the plan for the Seagram Building in Lexington Avenue in New York, designed the fitting out for the Four Seasons restaurant, inaugurated in 1959. For the dining rooms, were used various chairs designed by Mies, such as the flat steel bar Brno chairs. For the counter of the bar, Mies designed a purpose-built stool, whose sitting was supported by a formal cantilevered continuous steeel frame. The stools, originally realized only for the restaurant, are for the first time object of one mass production series.
