Barcelona® Lounge Chair
The iconic Barcelona® Lounge Chair from Knoll is one of the most recognized designs of the last century, epitomizing designer Ludwig Mies van der Rohe's "less is more" mantra. With simple elegance and a graceful profile, this lounge chair features leather squares that sit on top of a hand-buffed metal frame to create one of the most recognizable designs of the modern movement.

Upholstered with forty individual panels. The panels are cut, hand-welted, and hand-tufted with leather buttons produced from a single cowhide. Cushions are premium quality, highly resilient urethane foam with down-like dacron polyester fiberfill. Upholstery straps are cowhide belting leather. Sides are dyed to match specified upholstery color. Seventeen straps are used for cushion support. Frame is polished chrome hand-ground and hand-buffed to a mirror finish. Upholstery straps attached with aluminum rivets.
- Volo Leather: a lightly corrected, aniline leather with a slightly raised grain texture. A special retannage enriches the leather and tightens the grain, giving a level of quality superior to other corrected leathers.
- Acqua Leather: durable, water-resistant leather produced from hides originating in northern Italy, southern Germany, and Switzerland. A combination of a special retannage and finishing process results in leather that is water-resistant and anti-microbial.
- Sabrina Leather: a full grain leather, ideal for those seeking elegant, fine-grained leather for high-traffic use.
