THE BARCELONA COUCH IN WHITE LEATHER BY LUDWIG MIES VAN DER ROHE, 1930S
line

The Barcelona Couch by German architect Mies van der Rohe produced by Knoll in the USA.

The Barcelona Chair is Mies’ best known furniture design, originally designed for the Barcelona Pavillion in 1929, and a true icon of modernist design. The beautiful Barcelona Couch was added to the collection the following year both of which have been produced to his exacting specifications ever since.

Mies summed up his design philosophy with his favourite sayings - ‘less is more’ and ‘god is in the details’.

The Barcelona Couch that we currently have in our collection came out of the Sydney MLC Building, an important building designed by Harry Seidler, in the late 1970s.  The condition of the frame and white leather is excellent, testament to the enduring quality of the original design.
