Ludwig Mies van der Rohe for Knoll - 1930
Designed a year after the Barcelona Chair and Stool, the Barcelona Couch shares the same simple elegance as its predecessors. The architect Philip Johnson was instrumental in helping the Barcelona Couch gain popularity; it was first designed for his New York apartment and later made famous in his Glass House. The KnollStudio Logo and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s signature are stamped on each piece.
Hardwood frame is Sapele Mahogany with a clear lacquer finish. Tubular steel legs in polished stainless steel finish. Cowhide belting straps are all stained to match specified leather colour. 72 individual leather panels are cut, hand-welted and hand-tufted with leather and buttons produced from a single cowhide. Cushions are highly resilient urethane foam with down-like dacron polyester fiberfill. Available in a range of Spinneybeck leathers.
