Ludwig Mies van der Rohe was a German American architect. He believes pure and simple design is best for a building. The Barcelona Chair is one of his accomplishment. It was exclusively designed in 1929 for the German Pavilion, that country's entry for the International Exposition of 1929 and it was hosted by Barcelona, Spain. The chair defines modernism and was inspired by the folding chairs of ancient time. The chair was made of stainless steel and pigskin. It's simple, neutral, and comfortable. It is definitely the perfect bench for a minimal and modern interior.
