|Ludwig Mies van der Rohe|
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, Peter Behrens. In the mid-1920s, he began to design furniture, pieces that he conceived and created for particular interiors. In 1927, he met Lilly Reich, a Bauhaus alumnus who collaborated with Mies on his first versions of a cantilevered chair with a tubular steel frame. The cantilevered chair had a curved frame that exploited the aesthetic, as well as the structural possibilities of this material. Their experiments culminated in the virtuoso Brno chair designed between 1929 and 1930 with a chromed flat steel frame.
This is an original Mies Van Der Rohe Barcelona chair manufactured by Knoll. There are two chairs of this model available and can also be paired with the matching ottomans as seen in another ad. The classic Barcelona chair has been very popular among architects and designers since its design in 1929 for an International Exhibition in Barcelona.
