The Barcelona chair designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe for Knoll and available at Context in Atlanta.
Designed in 1929 by architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. The chair was initially intended for the royal family to sit in, should they be fatigued while visiting the German Pavilion at the International Exibition in Barcelona. From that time this chair has passed into the pantheon of design classics.
The curved shape of the frame contains 17 belting support straps and the seat and back cushions are invisibly fixed with hidden belts. The cushion is made of 40 individual panels, which are cut, hand-welted and hand-tufted leather and buttons produced from a single cowhide. Matching ottoman also available.
