The “Barcelona” remains the most representative classic by Mies van der Rohe, a true icon of the 1900s’ design. It was in the project of the German pavilion at the World Exhibition of Barcelona in 1929. Mies put two armchairs side by side, as thrones for the Spanish Royalty during the inaugural ceremony, while stools were provided for the followers of the sovereigns. In line with the stylistic severity of the author, the form is designed exclusively on the basis of its function. The “shell” is only made by a structure of steel bars with cowhide straps, to support the two cushions of seat and back. As simple, as extraordinary. All the solderings and finishings are handmade, because the master rejected the production in series. This is a long and complex work: after the soldering, the structure is buffed for hours to eliminate every imperfection before the chrome plating. Polished chrome flat steel frame, with a mirror finish. Cowhide support straps. Polyurethane foam cushions. Upholstery made of individually stitched and piped leather pieces, fixed by leather-covered buttons.


100% Made in Italy. Mirror polished and chromed flat steel frame. Hide thongs suspension. Cushions filled with polyurethane foam, covered with checkered leather (available also in fabric or skin upholstery).
