Ludwig Mies van der Rohe
Barcelona chairs, pair

Gerald R. Griffith
Germany / USA, 1929 / c. 1955
leather, stainless steel
30 w x 30 d x 32 h in (76 x 76 x 81 cm)

These examples were made by Gerald R. Griffith in Chicago under the supervision of Mies van der Rohe. The Griffith chairs have extremely precise corners, and less reinforcement at the central cross than later production examples by Knoll.


Each chair exhibits surface scratches and faint abraded areas to frames. Cushions show assorted wear, with small abrasions and thin scratches from use over time. Good and stable condition.
