About the Barcelona Sofa 3 Seater
This sofa is an evolution of the Barcelona chair designed by Mies van der Rohe for the German Pavilion at the 1929 International Exposition, in Barcelona. Like the original design, it has the distinctive criss-crossed, chromed steel frame and plump cushions covered in dozens of precision-stitched squares of leather. The Barcelona collection also includes a two-seat sofa, table, stools and benches, all available in eight shades of aniline leather
The story behind the Barcelona Sofa 3 Seater
Mies van der Rohe produced the Barcelona Sofa to be part of of his design of the German Pavilion for the 1929 International Exposition in Barcelona. It was initially designed to seat the King and Queen of Spain. Drawing upon inspiration from the Emperors of Ancient Rome, Mies van der Rohe developed a collection that 'harmonized the old and new in our civilization'. The Roman influences are particularly apparent in his signature criss-cross square frames.
