Description:
 

The Barcelona Lounge Chair was developed by the famous architect Ludwig Mies Van der Rohe, in collaboration with the female designer Lili Reich.

Barcelona Chair was presented as part of the German Pavilion at the Germany's exhibition for the Ibero-American Expo in 1929.

This elegant modern design object, composed by a solid stainless steel frame and leather cushions filled with polyuretane foam resembles Deutsche Werkbund and Bau Haus principles of functionality, industrial purity and solidity.

"The chair that he designed for the Pavilion is said to have been inspired by both the folding chairs of the Greeks and the X shaped footstools of the Romans. This regal and formal lineage was quite fitting and was no doubt intentional, affording this modern design an intellectual and cultural weight that would be appreciated by the highly educated audience, and would have been all the more obvious in such a futuristic environment"( Oxford Dictionary of Modern Desigh, pg 282).
