The Barcelona chair is the iconic Mies van der Rohe chair. It epitomizes modern architecture, from the hand-buffed stainless steel to the individual leather squares carefully welted together. The leather body is comprised of 100% premium Italian leather. Two concave stainless steel legs support the chair, seeming almost unbelievable due to the contrast of the hefty body and thin legs. Each Barcelona chair is a tribute to traditional craftsmanship and meticulous attention to detail.

Mies van der Rohe, designer of this chair, is generally recognized as one of the founding fathers of Modernism, and the most purist of Modern architects. His work is characterized by a constructional clarity, free-flowing space and careful detailing, in accordance with his famous maxim "less is more." 

We guarantee your chosen design is produced only with the highest quality materials. We care about our manufacturing, which is why, at Barcelona Designs, we pay extra attention to the smaller details. 
● Our Barcelona Chair is available in 100% Full Grain Italian Leather upholstery. 
● Frame is constructed of superior grade steel for stronger support and resistance to chipping, corrosion and rust; polished to a mirror like sheen 
● Cushion surface features individually cut and sewn leather panels for optimum detailing and quality; full tufting of all appropriate seams 
● Heavy grade leather saddle straps color-match the upholstery; both sides of leather straps are finished for extra strength 
● The rear seat cushion edge features an angular contour cut to compliment the angle of the frame 
● The Barcelona Chair Cushions are made using High Density Foam 
● Braided thread used with Lockstitch ensures piping stays in place and seams are long lasting 
● All visible corners on cushions are seamless for a more clean and finished appearance 
● Underseat vent allows air to flow in and out of the seat cushion with weight; this retains the density, shape and comfort of the cushion over time
● Barcelona Chair Dimensions: 30"W x 30"D x 31"H - Seat Height:17"

Ludwig Mies van der Rohe

 

The modern city, with its towers of glass and steel, can be at least in part attributed to the influence of architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. Equally significant, if smaller in scale, is Mies’ daring design of furniture, pieces that exhibit an unerring sense of proportion, as well as minimalist forms and exquisitely refined details. In fact, his chairs have been called architecture in miniature – exercises in structure and materials that achieve an extraordinary visual harmony as autonomous pieces and in relation to the interiors for which they were designed.

 

Mies van der Rohe began his career in architecture in Berlin, working as an architect first in the studio of Bruno Paul and then, like Le Corbusier and Walter Gropius, for Peter Behrens. In 1927, a housing project called Weissenhof Siedlung in Stuttgart, Germany, would bring these names together again. Widely believed to be one of the most notable projects in the history of modern architecture, it includes buildings by Gropius, Corbu, Behrens, Mies and others.
