One of the most recognized objects of the last century, and an icon of the modern movement, the Barcelona Chair exudes a simple elegance that epitomizes Mies van der Rohe’s most famous maxim–“less is more.” Each Barcelona piece is a tribute to the marriage of modern design and exceptional craftsmanship.
This chair was designed to furnish the German Pavilion at the International Exhibition in Barcelona, where it would serve as seating worthy of the King and Queen of Spain. Not only is comfortable, but it is also good looking. It is available from Knoll in several colors. Other furniture manufacturers are offering a modified version of this chair. Lee Industries offers a chair and a chaise in Sicily Camel leather with polished stainless steel frame.
