Barcelona Chair The Legendary Furniture

Furniture made in the late 19th century or later looks different from the old type of furniture and is known as modern furniture. Ludwig Fräulein Van Der Rohe is a German architect who lived in the early 20th century. Mies has created many new and elegant furniture designs. 

Mies Van Der Rohe designed a fairly new chair in 1929 that the King and Queen of Spain could sit at the 1929 World Fair in Spain. This chair is appreciated by everyone and is known as the Barcelona chair. Even though it was designed for over a year, it is still considered a modern chair to this day and is very popular all over the world. You can visit this website to have a look at the Barcelona chair.

This chair frame is made of stainless steel. The newest chair of this type is made of cowhide, although Mies Van Der Rohe uses pork skin on the chair. This chair is considered a symbol of modernity in furniture. Mies patented this chair design in Germany, Spain and the US. Knoll is currently the licensed manufacturer of this chair, which received the rights from Mies Van Der Rohe in 1953. 

Despite having a registered trademark, unofficial production takes place in many parts of the world. Seamless stainless steel and luxury aniline leather chairs from various furniture manufacturers are available worldwide. However, the changes made to the original are still very minor.

Today Barcelona style chair is considered a modern piece of furniture that can add elegance and style to a modern homeroom. This chair is a status symbol. It is considered the pride of Germany and also the seat of members of the royal family. 

All furniture makers who try to make this chair cannot make it exactly the same as the original version. Nowadays furniture designers are taking online courses to learn how to design these chairs.
