Created by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe for his 1929 German Pavilion at the International Exhibition in Barcelona, the Barcelona Collection’s pure composition came to epitomize Modern architecture. From the hand-buffed stainless or chrome frame to the individual leather squares carefully welted together, each Barcelona piece is a tribute to traditional craftsmanship and meticulous attention to detail. In addition to the chair and stool, the collection also includes a couch.
