Barcelona Chair in Brown Leather

Beautifully inspired Ludwig Mies Van Der Rohe and Lilly Reich’s stunning Barcelona chair in Cognac brown semi-aniline leather.

Designed originally for the German pavilion in the 1929 Expo in Barcelona, Spain, its smooth lines and attention to detail are a perfect example of form and function. This timeless piece of designer furniture features the pure compositional structure that now epitomises modern architecture and is the most widely recognisable piece of furniture in production today.

Mies Van Der Rohe and Lilly Reich

Much is talked about Mies Van Der Rohe and his most famous of furniture designs the Barcelona chair, however little is mentioned about Lilly Reich the other of the designers responsible for bring us the Barcelona chair, in much the same way Ray is not mentioned as much as Charles Eames.

Born in Berlin in 1885, she went to work in Vienna at the age of 23 at Wiener Werkstätte with architects, designers and alike for 3 years. Upon her return to Germany in 1911 she began designing her own furniture, and working for a similar company in Berlin called Werkbund exhibition until in 1924 she organised and designed trade fairs. This was at a time when Germany was in recession due to war reparations and trade fairs would have been difficult to gather enough customers.

It was at the Deutscher Werkbund that Lilly and Mies first met and enjoyed a period of collaboration through the late 1920's that culminated in the production of the Barcelona range

Construction of the Barcelona Chair

Our version of the Barcelona Chair in soft Italian semi aniline Cognac brown leather with thick saddle leather brown straps and is equally as luxurious as the original Bauhaus design. The frame unlike the cheaper chrome version is constructed from heavy gauge 12mm flat polished stainless steel (grade 304) and reassuringly heavy. The scissor like metal work is welded into a single piece with the straps riveted into the frame. The cushions are sewn from individual panels of cognac brown cow hide with matching piping and decorated with hand tufted buttons. Any of these exquisite designer chairs would look perfect in either contemporary or traditional living spaces and the addition of an Barcelona Ottoman to your Barcelona Chair would complete the look..
