The rediscovery of a versatile classic: at the occasion of the 100 years of Bauhaus anniversary, we have re-issued the round side table MR 515 by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. The original version is available as a re-edition from the Thonet tubular steel furniture catalogue from 1935 with a tubular steel frame and glass tabletop. This table was presumably created around 1928 in the context of the Esters and Lange Houses in Krefeld designed by Mies van der Rohe. With a fresh look at the original, Studio Besau Marguerre designed more interpretations of the MR 515, resulting in adaptations that present sensitive embellishments to this furniture classic’s elegance. It combines modern ideas of use and technical details with a contemporary touch.
Marcel Besau’s and Eva Marguerre’s perspective on the table series remains close to the original design, but the details make the difference. Their interventions are both subtle and technical. The central crossing point of the table legs beneath the glass panel is especially elegant. Based on the research of original versions of the table, the idea of an optional shelf, which adds extra functionality and cosiness to the table series, is also brought back to life.
The versions in detail
The original side table MR 515 by Mies van der Rohe is 60 cm high, the glass panel has a diameter of 70 cm. The round table is available in two sizes in the interpretation by Studio Besau Marguerre: a larger, lower version MR 516 (diameter 70 cm, height 38 cm), and a smaller, higher version MR 517 (diameter 50 cm, height 46 cm). Upon request, both models are also available as MR 516/1 and MR 517/1 with an additional shelf.
