Ludwig Mies Van Der Rohe Style Barcelona Chair


Originally created to furnish the German Pavilion at the 1929 International Exhibition in Barcelona, the Barcelona Chair and Stool (1929) have come to epitomize modern design. Ludwig Mies van der Rohe designed the Chair to serve as seating for the king and queen of Spain, while the Stool was intended to accommodate their attendants. Still produced to his original specifications, the Barcelona’s cushions – welting and buttons included – come from a single Spinneybeck® leather cowhide and are supported by cowhide belting straps, dyed to match the color of the chair. To create the deep, precise tufting, individual panels of leather are cut, hand welted and hand tufted. The chromed-steel frame is stamped with Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s signature. Manufactured by Knoll according to the original and exacting specifications of the designer.
