Ludwig Mies van der Rohe was selected to design the German Pavilion for the 1929 International Exposition in Barcelona.
Through masterful proportioning and planning, Mies Van Der Rohe created a rhythmic and entirely unprecedented Barcelona Chair, which elevated industrial-age materials to a level of grace never before achieved. Inside, Mies Van Der Rohe included chairs and stools conceived as a resting place for the King and Queen of Spain. Determined to create a chair worthy of royalty, Mies Van Der Rohe is thought to have based the designs, with their signature crisscross frames, on the campaign chairs of Ancient Rome. The creator of the Barcelona Chair: Mies: “I feel that it must be possible to harmonize the old and new in our civilization. «This how the Barcelona Chairs have been created
Mies Van Der Rohe, a close friend and mentor to Florence Knoll during her time at the Illinois Institute of Technology, formally granted Knoll the production rights to the Barcelona Chair and Stool in 1953. The designs of the Barcelona Chair immediately became a signature of the Knoll brand and have been built to Mies van der Rohe’s exacting standards ever since.
