Miniature MR 90 Barcelona Chair (Mies van der Rohe)

  • $ 699.00

Mies van der Rohe designed the German pavilion and corresponding furniture for the 1929 world's fair in Barcelona. While Mies van der Rohe implemented his ideas of avant-garde steel and glass architecture for the building design, he drew his inspiration for the furniture from historic models. Mies van der Rohe took as his starting point the ancient, scissors-shaped collapsible folding chair, already a symbol of power among Egyptian rulers. In keeping with the occasion, he adopted the representative qualities of the scissors chair, although he does without the folding function and interprets it afresh.
