Barcelona Mies van der Rohe _The Barcelona chair is a chair designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Lilly Reich. It was originally designed for the German Pavilion, that country's entry for the International Exposition of 1929, which was hosted by Barcelona, Spain.
Marcel Breur's chair (1928) reflects the universal appeal movement through its lack of 'decoration' and timeless appeal. The chair strictly follows its function and does not include elements which are not necessary for its purpose. This ideology complements my personal preferences regarding design, which is minimalistic and simple.
