According to Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, the relationship between human beings and nature must take them each one by its own side, to a higher unity. This way, the Farnsworth House is built like an open place where nature and light have plenty of access to the house, while its design and exterior make a sharp contrast with nature, due to its squared shapes and clear colors.
As we can imagine the place is settled with the main furniture elements of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Lilly Reich collaboration: The Barcelona Chair, the Barcelona Daybed, among others.
Designed for the famed physician, Edith Farnsworth, the house had all the features of Mid Century Modern architecture: rectilinear structures with minimal frameworks, open interiors spaces stripped of ornamentation, and exposed architectural parts, constructed to seem weightless.
As a curious note, Edith Farnsworth wasn´t happy with the result of van der Rohe, and they had several legal bitter disputes for several years after the house was finished. Nevertheless today it is considered one of the jewels of American architecture.
