Ludwig Mies van der Rohe born in Aachen Germany was one of the greatest pioneers of 20th Century modern architecture. His architectural style was a combination of simplicity and clarity in design and his influence can still be seen in many new projects today. He joined his father’s business after leaving school and later moved to Berlin to persue a career in architecture.

 

His 1929 German Pavillion (more commonly known as Barcelona Pavillion) is a great example of his work. Designed in the most simplistic form and made from the most expensive of materials, the Barcelona pavillion would not look out of place if it was built today. It was for this building that Mies designed his widely recognised Barcelona chair.

 

Mies was the last director of the famous Bauhaus design school until its closure in 1933. His design skills were welcomed and encouraged in America, where he soon settled in Chicago and became Head of Architecture at the prestigious Illinois Institute of Technology – insisting that he designed all of the new campus buildings which still stand today.

 

Mies also designed the Barcelona Coffee Tables and the Brno Chair.

 

All items are Mies van der Rohe inspired designs.
