The Mies van der Rohe Barcelona Style Chair is a design classic that has been displayed in luxury homes and hotels around the world. The Barcelona Style Chair captures all the details that made the original such a timeless design. The seat angle is perfect for relaxing. The padded frame provides comfort and support, while the curved polished steel tubular legs create a beautiful contrast. The original Mies van der Rohe Barcelona Chair was made with pig skin, but you'll probably be happy to hear our version is upholstered in top grain aniline leather. This has a natural appearance that improves with age.
THE STORY BEHIND THE MIES VAN DER ROHE BARCELONA STYLE CHAIR
Mies van der Rohe created the Barcelona Chair as part of his design of the German Pavilion for the 1929 International Exposition in Barcelona. It was initially designed to seat the King and Queen of Spain. Drawing upon inspiration from the Emperors of Ancient Rome, Mies van der Rohe developed a collection that 'harmonized the old and new in our civilization'. The Roman influences are particularly apparent in his signature criss-cross square frames.
ABOUT THE DESIGNER
MIES VAN DER ROHE
1886 (Germany) -1969 (United States)
Ludwig Mies van der Rohe was a German-American architect and is regarded as one of the most important figures in the history of architecture. His "less-is-more"approach to design became the gold standard for many generations of modern architecture. The simple forms and extravagant materials Mies van der Rohe used to design the Barcelona Pavilion have inspired many modern minimalist buildings including Capel Manor in Kent, England.
"Less is more."
