Product Description

Barcelona Chair

Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s Barcelona Chair was designed for the German Pavilion at the Barcelona Exposition of 1929. The Pavilion was the site of the inaugural ceremony for the German exhibits at the exposition, and the Spanish king was to preside. Tasked with creating a chair worthy "to receive a king," van der Rohe designed this modernist masterpiece which was immediately praised for its elegant lines and refined proportions. The Barcelona Chair is included in the Museum’s collection, and was featured in the Mies Van der Rohe Centennial, an exhibition mounted by the Department of Architecture and Design in 1986. This authorized reproduction is produced by Knoll, the storied furniture company to whom van der Rohe personally accorded exclusive manufacturing rights in 1953. Features a hand-buffed frame and individual leather squares carefully welted together.
