The Arts Club of Chicago
Plans for the dining table.
For 100 years, The Arts Club of Chicago has been a preeminent venue for promoting the appreciation of art by established and emerging artists. Since its founding in 1916, The Arts Club has found its home in eight different locations, each interior designed by a local architect. Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and John Vinci both completed interiors for The Arts Club; in 1951 Mies van der Rohe completed a second floor interior space for a building at Ontario and Rush, the only interior space he did for a building he did not design, John Vinci of Vinci | Hamp Architects, Inc. completed their current location in 1997, incorporating Mies van der Rohe’s iconic floating staircase into his design.
