Barcelona Chair & Ottoman - Replica

Van der Rohe produced the exclusive design of the Barcelona Chair to seat the Spanish King and Queen at the 1929 World Exhibition in Barcelona. It was inspired by the Roman "sella curulis" judge’s chair and the ancient Egyptian folding stools. In Rohe’s own words the Barcelona Chair was “important and elegant”, which was soon confirmed by the chair’s overwhelming popularity. The simplicity of the refined design joins functionality and a focus on proportion. Recognised as one of Van der Rohe’s most iconic designs, the Barcelona Chair ensures great seating comfort and a clean-cut silhouette. The button details on both the chair and matching ottoman add to the aesthetic appeal of the design as well as being the signature feature of the whole Barcelona collection. The reliable construction provides durability and stability.

We produce this classic piece with matching ottoman with a durable chromed metal frame, upholstered in classic or premium leather. It is available in several colours. The Barcelona Chair and Barcelona Ottoman are also available separately.

About the Designer

Van Der Rohe

Van Der Rohe

Widely regarded as one of the pioneering masters of modern architecture, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe inherits the title as the ‘Father of Bauhaus’ for his intensely modernist vision and art deco form of expression. Born in Aachen in Germany in 1886, Mies sought to establish a new architectural style representative of modern times, similar to the impact Classical and Gothic conjured for their own eras. He constructed an influential and inspirational twentieth century architectural style, stated with extreme clarity and simplicity.

Bound by the ethos of ‘less is more’, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe created aesthetically compelling work, simple in appearance yet holding a unique beauty to any observer or art lover. Expanding his craft from architecture to furniture design, German-born Mies undertook the majority of his career living in the United States, before his passing in Chicago, 1969.

The influence and inspiration generated by Mies resonates to this day and his work is championed and celebrated on a worldwide scale. The Ludwig Mies van der Rohe Archive, an administratively independent section within the department of architecture and design at MoMA New York, was established in 1968 by the museum's trustees, while the National Gallery in Berlin and Museum of Fine Arts in Houston are among some remaining examples of his architecture, testament to his significance.
