The Mies Van Der Rohe Four Seasons Bar Stool construction originally began in 1958 when he and Philip Johnson were commissioned to design the restaurant and bar for Manhattan's prestigious Four Seasons Hotel. Keeping with the Bauhaus style, Mies chose to modify his Flat Arm Brno design for the bar area. The Mies van der Rohe Four Seasons Bar Stool shows strength and stability with clean lines and simplicity. The Four Seasons Bar Stool was unveiled to the public in 1959, though until not until recently was the stool put into mass production.
The stool uses a continuous piece of steel for the frame with a cross brace used as a foothold.
Mies van der Rohe was born in Germany in 1886. At the age of 19 he moved to Berlin, and starting working with the Art Nouveau architect and furniture designer Bruno Paul. Just a year later, he received his first commission for an architectural design of a local philosopher's home. Over the next 10 years he studied the works of Frank Lloyd Wright and Karl Friedrich Schinkel. By 1912, he had his own studio in Berlin.
