Barcelona Style Chair
Pieces like this set the standards for furniture design.
The Barcelona Style Chair is inspired by the chair designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe in 1928 for the German Pavilion, created as that country’s entry for the International Exposition in Barcelona in 1929. In 1950, Mies redesigned the chair using new materials. This allowed the frame to be formed by one seamless piece of metal, resulting in the sleek, simple design as it is known today. The original is marketed by the company Knoll.
Upholstered in leather, its elegant shape is based on the cross-legged chairs used by Roman magistrates. These models are an alternative, designed to reach a bigger audience.
The frame is made of flat polished chrome steel. The legs are in the shape of an “x” with slight curves that highlight its beauty. With support straps made of faux leather, a polyurethane foam seat, and black leather checkered upholstery.
Also available in white leather on our website.
