“Architecture is a language,” said Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. “When you are very good, you can be a poet.” Displaying his own signature visual lyricism, he created the Four Seasons Stool in 1958 for the Four Seasons restaurant in New York, which was designed by Philip Johnson. The stool’s cantilevered base recalls the lines of Mies’ iconic Brno chair, appearing to defy the laws of gravity. The slim footprint and upholstered leather foam cushion—offering both practicality and comfort—are what further elevate his poetic expression to the status of classic. Manufactured by Knoll according to the original and exacting specifications of the designer. Made in U.S.A.
