In 1929 Mies van der Rohe designed the German Pavilion for the International Exposition in Barcelona, Spain. In it contained what was to become one of interior design's most famous modern classic chairs, the Pavilion Chair. Using flat steel and a cantilever scissor form structure, the chair has a fairly rigid structure.
Mies van der Rohe's original Pavilion chair used a frame of chromium-plated steel strips with horsehair cushions resting on thick belt leather straps. The steel strip design and 'x' joint had to be welded and polished by hand in a laborious operation. The Pavilion chair's intricate leather work used square tiles that were sewn together, then piped and buttoned.
Our Pavilion Chair is a careful reproduction based on an exhaustive study of the original chair. Size, shape, and angles are reproduced in an exacting fashion. Materials and workmanship is 100% Italian ensuring the finest in fit and finish. Each square of the upholstery is sewn giving the cushion the natural tufting sought after by Mies van der Rohe. The frame of the chair is constructed using flat steel that is painstakingly polished so that the joint is seamless. The final result is an heirloom treasure that is built to last for years.
