Always in the trends, the Barcelona Chair is constantly mentioned in every recount of design achievements, as something not only functional and beautiful but as a cosmopolite symbol of status.

Even though the Barcelona Chair was created in Europe and popularized in America in the 1950s, its fame is nowadays worldwide. In every market of furniture, when it comes to excellence in design, the Barcelona Chair comes out as a landmark for other creators to follow.

In the far east, India, and America, of course, the Barcelona Chair is reviewed by several prestigious publishers from the world of social chronicles to man’s article magazines.  In every case the Barcelona Chair is a design icon, a “must-have” in the living room of a savvy enthusiast of design, while is not being exhibited as a breakthrough design.

That is the case in the far east, in countries like Malaysia, where style magazines take the Barcelona Chair as one of the Top Designs in furniture. Making reference to it sleeker design, the Malaysian Tatler article, a Top 5 of the better furniture design for Savvy home-owners, the Barcelona Chair is paired with another classic design, like the Eames Lounge Chair, and the Louis Ghost Chair, by Philippe Starck. But the items in the list are mostly Mid Century Modern style.

The Malaysian Tatler is an luxury stylish magazine, targeting the best of Asian, and Malaysian Society and elite. 

In India, the appreciation for the Barcelona Chair is not less considerable. According to Architectural Digest India, the Barcelona Chair is defined as “a genius play of sculptural form and luxe material, designed for industrial manufacturing“.

The Barcelona Chair is reviewed in the section “Icon” of this prestigious magazine from the world of architecture. The article, though brief, is a great compliment for a design item released in 1929. 

It has to do with the mastermind behind the design, of course, but that wasn’t the only factor used to explain such extended journey.

This time the turn is for the Metropolitan Museum of New York, thanks to its publishing.

And back in America, the Barcelona Chair reaffirms its consolidation as one of the basic elements of the history of design and the Mid Century Movements, thanks to Institutions like the MoMA in NYC, and its  publishes.

According to My Modern Met, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe is one of the founders of the Modernism in Architecture and Arts, and you can tell it both in furniture and architecture.

In both fields, the philosophy of Van Der Rohe is very clear: Minimal ornamentation and a strong  structure  (“skin and bones”, he used to say). “Less is more”, one of its most famed architectural principles illustrates very well. The own structure of the object must act as its only ornament.

That is the case of the Barcelona Chair and the German  Pavilion from the Barcelona International Exposition.

In both fields, the philosophy of Van Der Rohe is very clear: Minimal ornamentation and a strong  structure  (“skin and bones”, he used to say). “Less is more”, one of its most famed architectural principles illustrates very well. The own structure of the object must act as its only ornament.
