Sustainable Aniline Leather
This product is made using non-toxic, natural leather from the renown Italian tannery DANI SpA.
Frame made of chrome-plated spring steel polished to a mirror-like shine.
Cushion filled with foam, supported by cowhide straps.
Upholstered with individual leather panels.
This chair owes its name to the fact that it was on display in the German Pavilion at the International Exposition in Barcelona, together with a matching ottoman. You are likely no stranger to its iconic design.
And you’re likely here because you are not prepared to pay almost 7,000 Dollars for a copy.
Well, you’re in the right place! We finish the Barcelona chair the way it was meant to be finished: as a luxurious chair that meets the highest standards.
There is nothing more embarrassing than a poor copy!
Our reproduction of the Barcelona chair means that you will get a piece of furniture that not only looks like the design it was based on, but also feels like the real deal.
This is the material Mies van der Rohe selected for his original chair. The gentle swaying action of the spring steel makes the seating surface of this chair appear to hover.
He spared no expense in the manufacturing of his furniture, which is why copies of this chair use stainless steel, which is decidedly inferior to spring steel.
The lustre of chrome
The raw frame goes through a series of processes in which the surface is worked until the weld seams are no longer visible and the surface reaches a high-gloss shine.
Only then is it ready to be finished with two layers of nickel and a finishing coat of chrome, guaranteed to last for decades.
The cushions of our chair follow the flow of the frame. This means that the backrest is slightly curved, and the bottom cushion is slightly tapered at the back. The backrest is almost flush with the top edge of the frame.
Little details that give our Barcelona chair a harmonious appearance and make us stand out from the rest.
Luxurious aniline leather
The exceptional quality of the leather used by steelform distinguishes us from our competitors.
Nowhere will you find a Barcelona chair made with leather that is better than ours, even at a much higher price.
Attention to detail
The upholstery buttons are made by hand, using matching leather.
The upholstery is made using a total of 40 leather panels, each cut and sewn by hand.
There is a price to be paid for attention to detail.
When the Barcelona chair was first produced by Berlin’s Metallgewerbe Josef Müller, it was listed under MR90 and the asking price was 520 Reichsmark. To put it into perspective, Mies van der Rohe, as director of Bauhaus, made 5,000 Reichsmark annually.
Compared to that, our version of this classic is a steal!
