Barcelona Day Bed by Mies Van Der Rohe
Some designs are built to last thru time, and the Barcelona Day Bed by German-American architect Mies van der Rohe is one of those special forms.
Considered one of the pioneers of modernist architecture, Mies' design holds up as sleek, contemporary, and versatile in 2020 ― nearly a century after its original creation in 1929. The day bed was built with purpose, specifically designed by Mies to be part of a collection for the Barcelona Pavilion ― a collective work emblematic of the Modern Movement ― during its year of production.
Part simplicity and part quality has kept the Barcelona Day Bed as a relevant figure in contemporary aesthetics ― the design features an African Sapele Mahogany wood frame on stainless steel legs hand-buffed to a mirror finish, completed with various Spinneybeck leather upholstery choices that are sourced from a single cowhide and hand-tufted for each piece.
The result: a premium piece that amplifies virtually any interior space.
