Summary
"Ludwig Mies van der Rohe (1886-1969) is not only one of the most important architects of the twentieth century, his furniture designs are also considered milestones in the history of design. Even today, his tubular and flat-bar steel furniture, such as the famous Barcelona Chan, are to a large extent still in serial production. Based on the most recent scholarship and taking new material into consideration, this publication devotes itself to these modern classics and in doing so, discusses the progressive concepts of interior space developed by Mies van der Rohe, who invariably understood the interior-design aspect as part of an overall architectural plan. Well-informed experts not only look back on the artistic highlights of Mies's career and their developmental history, their contributions also bring to life the atmosphere that prevailed in Berlin in the twenties and thirties. In addition, this book contains a series of previously unpublished photographs of Mies's work."--BOOK JACKET
