The Barcelona Chair [$5,500] was created by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe for the German Pavilion at the 1929 Barcelona Exposition. Its pure compositional structure now epitomizes Modern architecture. From its hand-buffed stainless steel to it chromed frame and individual leather squares carefully welted together, each Barcelona chair is a tribute to traditional craftsmanship and meticulous attention to detail. Knoll is the only authorized and licensed manufacturer of the Barcelona Collection since 1953. A Barcelona chair not manufactured by Knoll is a counterfeit.
