Barcelona Relax Chair
Designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. The Barcelona chair is a perfect design and strong visual statement. It has become the ultimate and timeless image of elegance and comfort.
A careful study of the potential for even softer upholstery and a new collection of “full grain” leathers, softer to the touch and capable of ageing gracefully have contributed to give a greater residential feel to what remains the undisputed ‘monument’ of the international history of design.
Frame: Chrome steel hand-ground and hand-buffed to mirror polish. Upholstery straps attached with aluminium rivets. For the upholstery in black leather the straps are dyed to match the same cushion upholstery colour. For all other leathers the exposed parts of the straps are covered with the same cushion upholstery leather. Chair contains 17 belting support straps.
Upholstery: 40 individual panels are cut hand-welted and hand-tufted with leather and buttons produced from a single cowhide. Cushions are fire retardant variable density foam covered with polyester fibrefills to enhance comfort and upholstered with top quality leather.
The seat and back are connected with a removable pin, the seat is secured to the structure with straps. The KnollStudio logo and the designer's signature are stamped into each piece.
Prices vary depending on leather. Please contact us to discuss options and to order sample swatches.

More information about Barcelona Relax Chair by Knoll
Knoll celebrates 75 years of iconic design for the home and office.
Since 1938, Knoll has been recognised internationally for creating furnishings that inspire, evolve, and endure.
Knoll has remained true to the Bauhaus design philosophy that modern furniture should complement architectural space, not compete with it.
Founders, Hans and Florence Knoll, embraced the creative genius at the Bauhaus School and the Cranbrook Academy of Art to create new types of furniture and environments for the workplace. Their approach, where craftsmanship joined with technology through the use of design shapes Knolls’ values today.
The Knoll portfolio includes a host of the great pioneering modernist designers including Florence Knoll, Harry Bertoia, Marcel Breuer, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Eero Saarinen and Warren Platner alongside works from Richard Schultz, Frank Gehry, Jens Risom, Piero Lissoni, and Alexander Girard.
This tradition continues with more recent partnerships with many bold contemporary designers such as Marc Krusin, Edward Barber & Jay Osgerby, and David Adjaye.
