Inspired by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, "Barcelona Daybed"
The Barcelona Pavilion, designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, was the German Pavilion for the 1929 International Exposition in Barcelona, Spain. This building was used for the official opening of the German section of the exhibition. It is an important building in the history of modern architecture, known for its simple form and its spectacular use of extravagant materials, such as marble, red onyx and travertine.
The same minimalist yet spectacular features can be seen in the prestigious furniture specifically designed for the building, amongst them the iconic Barcelona Chair and Bench.
