The Day Bed By Mies Van Der Rohe: Royal Relax

The Barcelona Day Bed by mies van der rohe was originally designed by the German architect and designer in 1930 as an addition to his hugely successful Barcelona Collection, which was first introduced in his German Pavilion at the 1929 International Exhibition in Barcelona. The most famous product of this collection is obviously the Barcelona Chair, that was originally created to serve as a “throne” for the king of Spain during the inaugural ceremony of the Pavilion.

The opulent upholstery was no doubt designed to provide the softest possible seat for the Royal Backside, while the design for the chair itself was a modern interpretation of the folding chairs used by  Roman and Egyptian rulers.

As a rising figure of the modernist movement, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe was selected to design the Weimar Republic’s Pavilion for the Barcelona Industrial Exposition of 1929.

Through masterful proportioning and planning, Mies Van Der Rohe created a rhythmic and entirely unprecedented space, which elevated industrial-age materials to a level of grace never before achieved. Inside, Mies Van Der Rohe included chairs and stools conceived as a resting place for the King and Queen of Spain. Although the Barcelona Pavilion only stood for seven months, it is recognised as a defining achievement of modern architecture, as are the accompanying Barcelona Chairs (although the King and Queen reportedly never sat in them).

In the Barcelona Day Bed by mies van der rohe we can see an evolution of the arts of the German designer: Mies Van Der Rohe used to say that “God is in the details”, and in the production of this day bed Van Der Rohe has put all his attention to details, also using new materials. The Barcelona Day Bed by mies van der rohe was designed for Philip Johnson’s flat, and presented at the  Bauausstellung Berlin exposition, in 1931.

The Barcelona Day Bed by mies van der rohe was made up of a hard wood frame with chrome-plated steel legs, the surface is manufactured of upholstery foam material and covered with fine leather. The mold of this materials made up a day bed that is solid (thanks to the strength of the steel) and at the same time very comfortable and stylish (with the look of the leather).

In the Barcelona Day Bed by mies van der rohe we can see the application of another of the styles of the German designer and architect, epitomized in famous sentence “Less is more”. The style of this day bed is plain and simple, without unnecessary trappings, but a the same time elegant and comfortable.

This day bed is an unique object, that can be found in different colors, made with meticulous attention to detail, combined with the finest craftsmanship, elevate what is already an elegant, versatile design to a timeless collectible piece you’ll be proud to show off in your home or office.

If you choose the Barcelona Day Bed by mies van der rohe for your home or office, you will choose not only a piece of design history, but also the most comfortable partner for your relaxing moments.
