The Barcelona Armchair, Mies van der Rohe

Mies van Der Rohe design changed the history of design, one example out of all is the Barcelona armchair.

 

 

Not just another name, Mies van der Rohe’s is in the top ten best-known names in the design industry, and this is not surprising considering the contribution he made to the design world during his years as a designer. 

 

A German architect and designer, Mies van der Rohe is with Le Corbusier, Grophius and Wright among the most prominent exponents of the Modern Movement.

 

Mies van der Rohe ‘s famous Barcelona armchair is just one example of how far his designs have entered the common imagination and influenced the world of design at every scale to this day.

 

Contemporary aesthetics owe much to him; among his best-known architectural works is surely the Barcelona Pavilion, built for the 1929 World’s Fair, a symbol of his ability to innovate and renew. It was on this very occasion that the German designer and architect introduced concepts such as the free plan and fluid spaces, but it was not enough because it was also for this pavilion that he designed Mies van der Rohe‘s Barcelona armchair.

 

This armchair is an icon, still part of Knoll’s production, and as such embodies Mies van der Rohe ‘s vision of design , made of elegance and founded on his famous motto “less is More.”
