    Barcelona Chair by Mies Van Der Rohe, 1929. "Although many architects and furniture designers of the Bauhaus era were intent on providing well-designed homes and impeccably manufactured furnishings for the 'common man,' the Barcelona chair was an exception. It was designed for the Spanish Royalty to oversee the opening ceremonies of the exhibition and described by Time magazine as inhabiting 'his sumptuous German pavillion.'"

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.
