Villa Tugendhat Chairs by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe

Villa Tugendhat in the Czech city Brno was commissioned by Greta and Fritz Tugendhat and built in 1929-1930. It was designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. It is placed on the UNESCO List of World Cultural Heritage. Recently it has been completely renovated and it is now open to the public to visit.
Villa Tugendhat is the only example of Modern Architecture in the Czech Republic.
Exact replicas of the 1930 furniture are placed back in the interior.
The Tugendhat Chair and the Brno Chair were especially designed for this project together with Lilly Reich.
