Barcelona: the iconic chair by Van der Rohe for Knoll


The Barcelona chair was created by famous designer Ludwig Mies Van der Rohe in 1931 and has since been produced by the Knoll brand. Mies formally granted Knoll the production rights to the Barcelona Chair in 1953. The designs immediately became a signature of the Knoll brand and have been built to Mies van der Rohe's exacting standards ever since.

Choosing this chair means decorating your interiors with one of the most recognized objects of the last century, and an icon of the modern movement. The Barcelona Chair exudes a simple elegance and is a tribute to the marriage of modern design and exceptional craftsmanship.

The KnollStudio logo and signature of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe are stamped into the leg, while the frame is polished chrome hand-ground and hand-buffed to a mirror finish.
The cushions are upholstered with 40 individual panels that are cut, hand-welted and then quilted on a single cowhide. Also, note how the back adjusts to the curvature of the overall structure.
