Mies van der Rohe's first important design for a chair, the MR20, was created in 1927 for an exhibition in Stuttgart, and originally made by Berliner Metallgewerbe Josef Müller. Gebruder Thonet began mass-production of the design a few years later, from 1932 on. The chairs were also produced in Italy in the mid century.
