The Barcelona.

Barcelona chair & Ottoman

 

The Barcelona chair was designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Lilly Reich. It was originally designed for the German Pavilion, their entry for the International Exposition of 1929, which was hosted by Barcelona, Spain.

The frame was initially designed to be bolted together, but was redesigned in 1950 using stainless steel, which allowed the frame to be formed by a seamless piece of metal, giving it a smoother appearance. Bovine leather replaced the ivory-colored pigskin which was used for the original pieces.

The Barcelona chair and sofa are one of the designer led pieces we have chosen for our range.
