The Barcelona Chair is so named because it was exclusively designed for the king and queen of Spain at the Barcelona World Fair of 1929 as part of the German Pavilion. The design resulted from collaboration between the famous Bauhaus architect Mies van der Rohe and his long time partner and companion, the architect and designer, Lilly Reich. For Reich, only recently have her contributions been acknowledged. The Pavilion or Barcelona Chair is an icon of the "modern classical" style. It's design was inspired by its predecessors, the campaign and folding chairs of the Pharaohs and the Romans.
