Mies van der Rohe
The designer of one of the most prevalent and recognizable mid-century pieces, Mies van der Rohe (1886 – 1969) and his Barcelona chair have been well loved for decades. The German American visionary was a pioneer of modern architecture as well as furniture, inspiring countless buildings and reproductions during his long career.
Famous for adhering to his favorite quotes, “Less is more” and “God is in the details,” van der Rohe was known for his use of industrial steel, glass and minimal silhouettes. It was commonly referred to as “skin and bones” architecture. This approach carried over to his products as well. The Barcelona chair series and Brno Chair are modern expressions of leather, chrome and strong structure.
Van der Rohe was an incredibly influential man whose products are arguably at the forefront of mid-century design.
