“A chair is a very difficult object. A skyscraper is almost easier.” (Ludwig Mies van der Rohe)
Ludwig Mies van der Rohe (1886–1969) is not only one of the most important twentieth-century architects, his furniture designs are also considered milestones in the history of design. Even today, his steel-tube and flat-steel furniture, such as the famous Barcelona Chair, are to a large extent still in serial production.Based on the most recent research findings and taking new material into consideration, this publication devotes itself to these modern classics and in doing so, discusses the progressive concepts of interior space developed by Mies van der Rohe, who invariably understood the interior-design aspect to be part of an overall architectonic plan. Well-informed experts not only look back on the artistic highlights of Mies’s career and the history of their creation, their contributions also bring to life the atmosphere that prevailed in Berlin in the twenties and thirties. In addition, this book contains a series of previously unpublished photographs on Mies’s work. (English edition ISBN 978-3-7757-2220-9)
