The Mies Pavilion dematerialised

Nov 29, 2017

A temporary project by Catalan architects Anna and Eugeni Bach is covering the precious materials of Mies van der Rohe’s Barcelona Pavilion and turning it into a 1:1 scale model of itself.

The Barcelona chair
Mies van der Rohe and Lilly Reich designed a chair, especially for the Pavilion, consisting of a leather upholstered metallic profile that over the years has become an icon of modern design. To such an extent, in fact, that the Barcelona chair is still manufactured and marketed today.
