Barcelona Stool

Designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, 1929 

Whether placed in front of a Barcelona Chair, or standing alone, the Barcelona Stool exudes a simple elegance that epitomises Mies van der Rohe’s most famous maxim – “less is more”.

Exclusive manufacturing and sales rights were accorded to Knoll by the designer in 1953. The Barcelona stool is also available in the Kid version. 

The KnollStudio logo and the signature of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe are stamped into the base of each stool. 


The polish steel frame is hand-buffed and hand-finished to a mirror finish. 

The cushions are upholstered with 16 individual panels cut, hand-welted and hand-tufted from a single hide. 

Side and edges of upholstery straps are dyed to match specified upholstery colour.. 


Available in a range of Spinneybeck leathers.
The frame is available polished chrome. This product is available with foam that meets requirements for BS5852.
