Design Mies van der Rohe, 1929
Stainless steel or chromed frame, leather panels
Made in USA by Knoll
Created by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe for the German Pavilion at the 1929 Barcelona Exposition, the Barcelona stool features the pure compositional structure that now epitomizes Modern architecture. From the hand-buffed stainless steel or chromed frame to the individual leather squares carefully welted together, each Barcelona stool is a tribute to traditional craftmanship and meticulous attention to detail. Knoll is the only authorized and licensed manufacturer of the Barcelona Collection since 1953. Mies van der Rohe's signature is stamped into the frame of each piece to guarantee authenticity. Knoll has received trademark protection for the designs created by Mies van der Rohe, a Barcelona stool not manufactured by Knoll is a counterfeit.
Construction notes: Frame welded in single-piece construction from single stainless steel block for ultimate durability. Stainless steel & chrome frame are hand-buffed to a mirror finish. Individual leather panels are cut, hand-welted and hand-tufted, and panels and buttons are crafted from a single hide.
