The Stylish Barcelona Chair


Barcelona chair is one of the most famous pieces of modern furniture of the century. This classic chair has a very contemporary furniture design and is extremely comfortable. The Barcelona chair was originally designed by a renowned architect and designer Mies Van der Rohe. He was born in 1886 and was a premier modern architect of the era. He also worked as the director of the most reputed school of design in Germany, the Bauhaus. Mies had in-depth knowledge of his subject and strong understanding about designing and he knew that the building is incomplete without matching furniture and to complement the décor of his buildings he stepped into furniture designing.      

The Barcelona chair got Mies immense fame in furniture designing which were basically designed for a German Pavilion. In 1929, the World Arts Fair was hosted by Barcelona and in this International exhibition Mies Van der Rohe was commissioned to design the German Pavilion at Montjuic. The Barcelona chairs designed for the German pavilion were also used as royal thrones for the King and Queen of Spain. These chairs were elegant, extravagant, light weight, strong and were meant for people with the elite taste.

The design of Barcelona chairs was basically the contribution of two people Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, the famous architect of Bauhaus and Lilly Reich who was also an architect and designer by profession and a longtime companion of Ludwig Mies. Lilly Reich and Mies met in 1920 and thereon worked on many exhibition design projects. The Barcelona chairs were there legendary contribution to modern furniture. These stylish and functional chairs became largely popular worldwide due to their unique and innovative design and framework.

Barcelona chairs have also gained huge success in the 20th century due to their timeless design and are today considered as status symbol. The name they got was from their first use although Mies had re-designed the original chair in 1950 using stainless steel in the construction. This blend of classic design and state-of-the-art technology added to the solid construction of the Barcelona chairs and increased their popularity significantly. Today German company Knoll Studio holds the trademark rights of Barcelona chairs and is the current licensed manufacturer. Mies licensed the rights to Knoll in 1953 for the commercialization of his furniture designs. 

oday you can find a complete range of Barcelona furniture in addition to the Barcelona chairs which includes Barcelona footstools and Barcelona sofas. They are not designed by Mies van der Rohe but are constructed using the same parameters. If you are looking for high quality Barcelona chairs then www.emmanuelgeorges.org is your ultimate destination.
