Barcelona chair

The Barcelona chair is a world famous design by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. This chair has a stylish and modern look to it, even though it was created over 80 years ago. Thanks to this chair, van der Rohe became one of the most influentian designers of his time. In 1929 he designed this chair for the world exhibition in Barcelona. The chair belongs to the modern classics and fits into every interior style. 
 

History

The Barcelona chair was designed by Mies van der Rohe in 1929. Under the motto "less is more" he designed a simplistic, elegant and practical chair. The characteristic crossed legs were inspired by an antique folding chair. 
A while after the exhibition had ended, Barcelona chairs would be seen in an increasing number of offices and banks. In 1948 the Barcelona chair officially went into production and to this day, it is one of the most popular and well-known chairs. 
 

Design

Especially the crossed chair legs are, what makes the Barcelona chair so special. The frame used to be screwed together, but since it is made of stainless steel, it can just be moulded into the right shape. The cushions of the Barcelona chairs are made of high-quality top grain leather and the sidepanels are made of sturdy faux-leather. The cushions are attached with little straps on the back of the frame, which keeps them in place. 
 

Foot stool

The Barcelona chair can of course be used on its own, or it can be purchased as a set with a matchin foot stool. It is designed in the same style as the Barcelona chair and made of the same materials. Together with the chair, it creates ideal comfort!
