Designed in 1930 by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, the Barcelona® Couch shares the same simple elegance as the iconic lounge chair of the same name. Still produced to Mies van der Rohe's original specifications, the couch gained widespread popularity in 1953, when architect Philp Johnson selected it for his New York apartment. Mies van der Rohe's command of line and material in all medium, from architecture to furniture, helped define the modern vocabulary.
