Good architecture need not be a skyscraper. In fact, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe reduced it into the form of a chair quite nicely (and we still think it knocks the top off the sky...)
Although he did design his fair share of skyscrapers too, it’s Ludwig Mies van der Rohe Furniture—specifically the Barcelona Chair—that has most imprinted the zeitgeist. A German designer who worked in the same studio as Le Corbusrier, Mies van der Rohe is continually credited as one of the founders of Bauhaus. Indeed, it is Ludwig Mies van der Rohe décor that so aptly translates the less-is-more approach—floating-style frames paired with refined leathers makes for what has been reverently called architecture in the miniature.
