Ludwig Mies van der Rohe was an influential architect of the 20th century, and with a passion for minimalist style and contemporary design, became a world leader in the modernist movement. While his significance in architecture has left a legacy through his buildings and teaching, he is undeniably most recognised for his iconic Barcelona chair.
This replica Barcelona Chair is a tribute to Ludwig Mies van der Rohe's original design, undisputedly one of the most recognised and celebrated pieces of furniture in the world. The inspiration for his design came from an Egyptian folding chair, and he sought to create a modern-day throne. To re-create the deep, precise tufting of the original design, our replica is made with individual panels of top grain Italian leather, cut from a single hide then expertly hand welted and hand tufted. Also true to the original, the chair's front and rear side corners, as well as the back's top and bottom corners, have no seams - one piece of leather is used and sewn together at a singular center point in the back. The sweeping stainless steel legs are hand-buffed to mirror-like perfection, and the high density foam cushions are wrapped in Dacron for plush and luxurious comfort. Elegant and minimalist, this iconic piece is the epitome of sleek, modern design.
Ottoman sold separately. Team up with other products in the Replica Barcelona range to complete the look.
Please note that colours may vary slightly to what is pictured here. Variations in colour and grain are due to the natural characteristics of leather, and contribute to the uniqueness of each piece.
