Ludwig Mies van der Rohe hardly needs any introduction. Unless you’re unfamiliar with the history of twentieth century architecture, this name will take you back to the iconic built landmarks.
Ludwig Mies van der Rohe began his building career working at his father’s stone-carving shop. Post which, a stint at the architect Peter Behren’s office led him to pursue architecture. As any novice would, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, in his initial days would only do homes in various vernacular styles. But soon after, he fell in line with the avant-garde in Berlin, a mecca for architecture and design. And the rest followed.
Once Rohe established base in Berlin, he along with some friends of his, found a magazine, G: Material zur Elementaren Gestaltung (G: Materials for Elemental Form Creation). The aim of this magazine was to create an impact of Modernism through collage and drawing. Immediately after establishing the magazine, Rohe designed the Barcelona Collection of Furniture keeping in mind, German Pavilion for the 1929 Barcelona Exposition.
The Barcelona International Exposition of 1929 was the second world fair ever held. The German Pavilion, was used for the official opening of the German section of the exhibition, which is known for its clean form and wondrous use of lavish and luxurious materials. The same lineaments appear in the iconic furniture designed for the building.
The original Barcelona Daybed was an extension of the furniture design by Rohe for the expo. Designed in 1930, a year after the Barcelona Expo, this masterpiece followed suit to it’s counterpart.
