L. Mies Van Der Rohe

(1886-1969)
Mies Van Der Rohe was born in Germany and later found a second home in Chicago. Perhaps Mies’s most famous executed project of the interwar period in Europe was the German Pavilion (also known as the Barcelona Pavilion), which was commissioned by the German government for the 1929 International Exposition at Barcelona. One of his most appreciated pieces of work is cantilevered steel chairs, which are known as Barcelona chairs, who became an instant classic Icon of 20th-century furniture design.
