Ludwig Mies van der Rohe conceived the Krefeld Collection in 1927 as a complement to his brick and glass design for the Esters and Lange residences in Krefeld, Germany. (The buildings, now called the Krefeld Villas, have since been converted into a museum of post-war contemporary art.) Never put into production during Mies van der Rohe's lifetime, Knoll® partnered with the Museum of Modern Art to resurrect the Krefeld Lounge Collection in 2004, basing the design on original drawings from the museum's archive. Featuring Mies' signature style, with clean lines and no excess ornamentation or overstuffing, these pieces have an inviting warmth that suits virtually any residential lounge space, as well as lobbies, reception areas, hotels and public spaces. The Krefeld Sofa is manufactured by Knoll® according to the original and exacting specifications of the designer. Made in U.S.A.
- True to Mies van der Rohe's original vision, the collection is available in leather upholstery.
- Coil spring suspension and high-density foam cushions combine to create a comfortable, supported "sit."
