Mies

by Archizoom Associati

La poltrona Mies nasce nel 1969 dall’idea di impiegare una striscia di para o caucciù, materiali resistenti ed elastici, come seduta. La struttura, un triangolo in metallo cromato, evidenzia la purezza della sagoma. Il cuscino poggiatesta e il poggiapiedi illuminato sono in cavallino. Il nome evidenzia l’analogia della sua struttura con i progetti di Mies van der Rohe e rende omaggio al grande maestro deceduto nel medesimo anno. Nella sua rigorosa geometria la poltrona Mies sintetizza la filosofia degli Archizoom Associati, componenti di punta del Movimento Radicale Italiano, nato attorno alla secondo metà degli anni Sessanta.

📐Mies
Armchair and footrest designed by Archizoom Associati
.
The Mies armchair was born in 1969 from the idea of using a strip of para rubber or India rubber —strong, elastic materials— as a seat. The structure, a triangle in chrome—plated metal, brings out the purity of the silhouette. The headrest and footrest cushions are in ponyskin. The name emphasizes the similarity of the structure to the projects of Mies van der Rohe, as a tribute to the great master who died that same year. With its rigorous geometric design, the Mies armchair sums up the philosophy of Archizoom Associati, leading figures of the Italian Radical movement starting in the second half of the 1960s.

Mies, armchair by Archizoom Associati, Elle Decor Design Forever, Palazzo Bovara, Milan Design Week 2022.
.
Studio Calvi Brambilla choosed Poltronova for Palazzo Bovara. The exhibition curated by one of the most eclectic and interesting realities of the Italian scene, showed MIES by Archizoom Associati in the Hybrid Room. A seat dedicated to Mies van der Rohe, created in the year of his death (1969), and two light points to illuminate, ideally, the direction taken sixty years ago by the Tuscan company in interior design.
MIES is made of a strip of para rubber or caoutchouc, resistant elastic materials, fixed to a chromed metal triangle that highlights the purity of the shape. The headrest cushion and the illuminated footrest are in pony skin. In its rigorous geometry, the Mies armchair synthesizes the philosophy of Archizoom Associati, leading exponents of the Italian Radical Movement, born around the second half of the Sixties.
