Product Overview
In 1929, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe designed a chair with a single concept in mind. His Barcelona® Chair, created for the German Pavilion at the Barcelona World Exposition, is one of the most recognised objects of the last century, and an icon of the modern movement.

The Barcelona chair is a perfect design and strong visual statement. It has become the ultimate and timeless image of elegance and comfort. From the hand-buffed frame to the individual leather squares carefully welted together, each Barcelona piece is a tribute to traditional craftsmanship and meticulous attention to detail. A prefect synthesis of past, present and future.

A careful study of the potential for even softer upholstery and a new collection of “full grain” leathers, softer to the touch and capable of ageing gracefully have contributed to give a greater residential feel to what remains the undisputed ‘monument’ of the international history of design.
