The Bamberg Barcelona chair is an in-house Iconic Interiors project. The idea came to me when I saw a photograph (see below) of one of the very early Barcelona chairs from 1931 which sold at auction for £56000 with Christies in 1986. The chair looked very old but still beautiful. More beautiful I thought than a new chair - which I think can look too pristine. I often wonder how one of the first Barcelona chairs would have looked. I imagine it would have looked a lot more edgy and rugged.

Having visited the Mies Van Der Rohe pavilion in Barcelona I was fascinated with the Barcelona chairs they had on show. Again they had this very aged appearance. Extremely lived in but still looking fantastic. More details and photography can be viewed in our designer furniture blog. Leather finishes can be found by scrolling down this page as well as much more information and photographs.

The Full Story

The photograph below was used by Christies Auction House in Holland in 1986. It pictures one of the original Barcelona chairs designed by Mies Van Der Rohe. The chair finally sold for a staggering £56000. Astonishing. This photograph and my visit to the Pavilion in Barcelona gave me the idea of creating a chair more akin to this early creations.

I inspected the Barcelona chairs very carefully and noticed how coarse they were constructed. This to me did not distract from the design one bit. For me it enhanced the appearance. One thing which struck me was the thickness and rawness of the leather straps. The modern Barcelona chairs are arguably too clean, too perfect.

When I returned to my work shop in East Yorkshire I set about creating my homage to these early Barcelona chairs. More information and photographs can be found in our designer furniture blog.
