MID CENTURY ‘HOMMAGE TO MIES’ RH301 LEATHER CHAIR BY ROBERT HAUSSMANN

29" HEIGHT
25 1/4" WIDTH
32" DEPTH

A FANTASTIC LOUNGE CHAIR DESIGNED BY SWISS DESIGNER ROBERT HAUSSMANN IN 1954. KNOWN AS "HOMMAGE TO MIES" (REFERRING TO MIES VAN DER ROHE AND HIS BARCELONA CHAIR), IT FEATURES A CHROME PLATED STEEL FRAME AND REMOVABLE BLACK LEATHER CUSHIONS (WITH ZIPPERS). IT WAS CREATED TO FILL THE VOID WHEN METAL BAUHAUS FURNITURE BECAME HARD TO OBTAIN AFTER WORLD WAR II. THE CHAIR IS STILL PRODUCED TODAY BY DE SEDE, BUT WE BELIEVE THIS TO BE OF 1950S VINTAGE.
