Here is a beautiful "Barcelona" coffee table by Mies van der Rohe for Knoll, circa 1970s. This stunning glass top table is 3/4" thick clear glass with 1/8" beveled edges and sits on a polished chrome "X" base. Purchased from its original owner who bought this in the early 1970s and kept it in a pet-free kid-free home all its life. The glass is in almost perfect condition for its age, without any chips, nicks, or scratches, and weighs around 140lbs. The top of the chrome base is missing on a small glass bumper and we are looking into replacements for that. Overall this piece is in very good original condition. Please note that after a lengthy discussion with other experienced dealers and hours of research along with information from the original owner we believe this to be an authentic piece by Knoll. Please reach out directly should you have any further questions.
More about Mies van der Rhoe
Regarded as one of the most important figures in the history of architecture, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s ‘less-is-more approach to design was the gold standard for many generations of modern architecture. His legendary career started humbly at his father’s stonemasonry business, giving him an early appreciation of material and structure. From there he apprenticed with furniture designer Bruno Paul in Berlin before joining the office of Peter Behrens, an architect, and painter at the forefront of the modern movement.
In 1912, Mies established his own office in Berlin. Through furniture, residential projects and extraordinary, yet unrealized concepts for skyscrapers, he gained recognition as a leader of the German modern movement. As such, he was selected to design the German Pavilion at the 1929 International Exposition in Barcelona.
Mies served as Vice President of the Deutscher Werkbund and Director of the Bauhaus from 1930 until it closed in 1933. He immigrated to the United States in 1938 to become the director of architecture at the Armour Institute (later the Illinois Institute of Technology). From his Chicago-based practice, Mies designed a portfolio of buildings that changed the face of American institutional architecture ― the most notable examples being the IIT campus and the Seagram Building in New York.
