Mies van der Rohe designed this cantilever for the dining area and library of the Tugendhat Villa in Brno. Tubular steel instead of flat steel makes the chair considerably lighter and easier to move.
Stainless steel is often used today to avoid the labour intensive processing of flat steel. Apart from the fact that this material doesn't offer the same comfort the usage of low quality steel can lead to deformation of the frame over time. No risk of that happening with a steelform reproduction.
