Technology and a striking design result in an elegant piece of furniture. Ludwig Mies van der Rohe was the first to give the chair with its light character a prominent place in the interior. Prior to the exhibition in the Weißenhof-Siedlung, which he organized himself, Mies van der Rohe learned the principle of the collar chair through Mart Stam. However, Mies van der Rohe was not pleased with Stam's first design. It was not long before he answered the technological innovation with his own aesthetically designed design, which he presented in 1927. The S 533 is one of the very first cantilever chairs. The elegantly curved steel tube in the form of a large semicircle lends each room a special appearance. Characteristic
for the S 533 are the deliberately minimalistic use of materials, the elegant interplay of lines and the transparent effect. Thanks to the indestructible elastic suspension, the chair is particularly comfortable. Most designs from the 1920s emphasize functional aspects and simplicity, but this luxury armchair with its functionality, comfort and timeless aesthetic unmistakably bears the signature of Mies van der Rohe. The S 533 symbolizes a changed vision of quality.
