Ludwig Mies Van der Rohe designed the German Pavilion at the 1929 Barcelona World Arts Fair in Spain. The building was shockingly modern even by todays standards. The Barcelona Chairs were designed to complement the pavilion during the fair. Their elegant form rendered them more as sculptural objects in the gallery-like Pavilion. The Barcelona chairs became thrones when the Spanish Royals visited the Pavilion and sat in them for a time.
