Overview

Design by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, 1927.
By Knoll.

"Form is not the aim of our work. It is the result," wrote Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. His approach to architecture and design was based on the philosophy of "no trivial decoration." The Barcelona Table reflects this pure and simple design concept — at once functional and formal.

Ludwig Mies van der Rohe gave Knoll exclusive manufacturing and sales rights to produce the Barcelona collection according to Mies' original specifications. Select single piece construction base in Stainless or Chrome. And top with either a clear Glass top with a slight green tint (0.75" thick top with a 0.125" wide beveled edge) or the Starphire™ Glass top which is more clear and luminous than regular glass (with a 0.125" clear bevel edge).

Notes:

The KnollStudio logo and signature of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe is stamped into the base of the Barcelona Table. The Barcelona Table is Greenguard certified. Chrome table has black bumpers. Stainless steel table has white bumpers.

Love the look but disappointed in lack of sturdiness

By: Daniel P., Homeowner

We have always admired this table and recently decided to treat ourselves and actually buy it. We waited with anticipation and, when table arrived, we were as happy with it's simple and beautiful appearance as we expected. However, we are highly disappointed with the wobbly base and expected a much more sturdy table. Not sure we would have purchased this table if we knew how unsteady it would be.

Ludwig Mies van der Rohe

Designer: Ludwig Mies van der Rohe

Ludwig Mies van der Rohe began his career working in his father's stonemasonry business. After an apprenticeship with furniture designer Bruno Paul in Berlin, he joined the office of architect Peter Behrens, whose work presaged the modern movement. In 1912, Mies established his own office in Berlin, and later became a member of the Deutscher Werkbund and Director of the Bauhaus. He immigrated to the United States in 1938, setting up a practice in Chicago. His buildings include the German Pavilion for the 1929 Barcelona Exposition, the Tugendhat Villa in Brno, Czechoslovakia, the Seagram Building, designed with Philip Johnson, a cluster of residential towers along Chicago's Lakeshore Drive in Chicago, and the Illinois Institute of Technology campus, where he was the director of architecture.

Knoll

Manufacturer: Knoll

Brand Beginnings Knoll was founded in 1938 by Hans and Florence Knoll who sought to create new types of furniture and environments for the home and workplace. Their approach was to join craftsmanship with technology through the use of design and to create beautiful home furnishings that stood the test of time visually, functionally and practically. The pair sought out designers willing to change the landscape of modern design, daring to ask how furniture could work better. These landmark collaborations, with pioneering modernists like Eero Saarinen, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Harry Bertoia and Richard Schultz built a brand that today contains many of the hallmarks of modern design.

Knoll Today Knoll enjoys brand recognition throughout the world for its modern classics as well as groundbreaking new products formulated under new deigner partnerships. Few companies can match the array of Knoll products, which combine a modernist aesthetic with residential appeal. This point of view nurtured by Florence Knoll, has become the trademark of Knoll design. Today, it connects to a new generation seeking workplaces and homes that are comfortable for and beautiful for everyday living.

A Signature Piece The highly coveted Barcelona® Chair is, with little doubt, the signature Knoll piece. Designed in 1929 by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, it is one of the most recognized objects of the last century, and an icon of the modern movement. Skilled craftsman construct this exquisite chair by hand every day. From leather produced from a single cowhide, 40 individual leather panels are cut, hand-welted, and hand-tufted with leather buttons to upholster the chair. Premium cushions are highly resilient with a down-like softness that surrounds the sitter in luxurious comfort. Cushions are suspended by upholstery straps in cowhide belting leather over a metal frame that is hand-ground and hand-buffed to a mirror finish. Meticulously detailed, Barcelona continues to appeal to customers worldwide some 85 years after its introduction.

Why Knoll? The Knoll names offers a rich design history – a legacy of iconic designers and inventive new collaborations. Their focus on quality and responsible manufacturing means that each piece transcends multiple generations in both use and appeal. Knoll offers furniture, accessories, textiles, felts and leathers that stimulate the senses and allow you to express who you are and what you value. They take great pride in creating the best possible product and the happiest possible customer.
