Created by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Lilly Reich in 1929, the Barcelona chair draws inspiration from the Roman “curules,” a form of ancient seating for the aristocrats of the era. The royal connotation passed down to Spanish rulers, for which the first prototype was made, and then to many film and television sets which acknowledge the chair’s luxurious and noble origins.

  1. Tron: Legacy (2010)

Like everything from the mid-century modernist period, the “Tron: Legacy” sets wanted to convey a feeling of futuristic ambiance with a classic twist, and the Barcelona chair made a striking appearance in an all-white upholstery (along with other mid-century classics).

  1. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016)

If Tony Stark gets to own the Arco Lamp and Eames lounge chair (also featured in “Tron: Legacy”), what does his DC Comics counterpart get? Bruce Wayne seems to like modernist furniture as much as Iron Man, and his lake house is the best proof of that. However, he seems to enjoy Bauhaus a little bit more, throwing a van der Rohe daybed, Brno chairs, and a Le Corbusier dining table in the mix.

  1. Casino Royale (2006)

If there’s anyone from the movie world that’s fit to sit on a classic Barcelona chair, classic brown leather style, that person is James Bond. I rest my case. The scene is on a beautiful, classic hotel room, somewhere in Europe. Bond (played by Daniel Craig) is looking a bit distraught while receiving a visit from M, his superior. The comfort of the Barcelona chair, somehow, appears to lighten the mood.

  1. American Psycho (2000)

By now you’ll probably have noticed that successful, wealthy men have a thing for Barcelona chairs (again, think of its royal origins). The very clean-cut serial killer Patrick Bateman (also a rich businessman), played by Christian Bale, is no exception. His white-clad apartment includes a couple of black leather renditions, complete with their ottomans at the other side of an Alanda glass coffee table.
