 The original chair exudes grandeur and class and also it's strong and light. The Barcelona chair is thought of by ordinary consensus to be the pinnacle of a harmonized approach to materials, design, and workmanship.

Back in 1950, the initial design was improved by Mies that led to a completely welded object where additional braces in the welding things were removed. The one-piece framework made from stainless steel provided higher durability and spring.

Two joined pairs of stainless steel bars represent the frame of the seat; front and rear legs of the seat are curved, and the rear legs cross front legs to make a dual-band that supports the chair. Foam-rubber cushions are coated with buttoned leather and put on the chair and the rear by way of saddle-leather straps.

The Barcelona chair is marketed by various furniture shops; several of them have online catalogs, which a potential purchaser can navigate through.

Although there are numerous renditions of this Barcelona chair available on the market, they are usually made from chromed stainless steel using the single-piece framework being hand-buffed until a mirror finish is accomplished.
