Barcelona Designs Stellar Mies Van der Rohe Reproduction
Mies van der Rowe was a 20th-century German-American architect who had begun his career in architecture at the meager age of 15. His work reached national prominence after World War I, during which he helped lead the modernist movement in art and architecture. He had built buildings and museums as well as furniture. Van der Rohe’s furniture is known as industrial and he sought to accentuate the lightness within delicate structures. Urban design was Van der Rohe’s most outstanding traits in his artwork and you can see this from the Barcelona chair replica. Mies van der Rohe is recognized internationally for his architecture and his furniture alike and his career took a high note during the Barcelona Exhibition, where van der Rohe premiered his Barcelona chair. The rest is history. The Barcelona Ottoman is a replica that pairs excellently with van der Rohe’s Barcelona Chair.

About the Designer
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.
