Originally designed for the German Pavillion in 1929, the Barcelona Chair is still considered as a timeless collectible design classic. The frame was initially designed to be bolted together, but was redesigned in 1950 using stainless steel, which allowed the frame to be formed by a seamless piece of metal, giving it a smoother appearance. Bovine leather replaced the ivory-colored pigskin which was used for the original pieces. The Barcelona Chair can be ordered through Tonic as the local agents for Knoll.
