modern classic: ibiza chair

The Barcelona Chair is an icon of Modern design dating back to 1929.  It was designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Lilly Reich for the German Pavillion and made its debut at the International Exposition of 1929 in Barcelona Spain.  The use of chrome on steel and leather with clean lines was a design ahead of it's time and a design that would never go out of style.  Once the patent expired, the Barcelona is now licenced by one manufacturer.  Fortunately there other great, lower priced, reproductions available.
The Ibiza will be the featured guest in this week's Style Board coming Wednesday.
