The Barcelona Daybed is one of the beautiful reproductions of Barcelona collection designed by Mies Van der Rohe. Mies is well known for his flawless sense of proportion, minimum forms and refined details in his designs. His creations are called architecture in miniature.
The History of the Barcelona Daybed
In the year 1929, when the modernist movement was gaining momentum, Ludwig Mies Van der Rohe was hired to design the German Pavilion for the International Exposition in Barcelona. With his masterful planning and intelligent proportioning, Mies created an unparallel space that was rhythmic. Through his creation, Mies elevated the grace of industrial-age material to new heights.
Mies van der Rohe created a resting place for the King and the Queen of Spain by including chairs and stools in the pavilion. The chairs for the Royals were designed with their signature crisscross frames. Though the pavilion stood for a mere seven months, the pavilion and the chairs are gained popularity as an achievement of modern architecture.
