Beginning his career as an apprentice at Peter Behrens’s architecture studio alongside Le Corbusier and Walter Gropius, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe went on to design iconic buildings such as the Friedrichstraße Skyscraper in Berlin, the German Pavilion for the Barcelona World Fair and Villa Tugendhat in the Czech Republic. An avid modernist, it is no wonder that Mies van der Rohe went on to become the third and final director of the Bauhaus.

Renowned for his ability to consider both comfort and functionality in conjunction with contemporary and artistic aesthetics, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe also turned his hand to designing furniture. Creating instantly recognisable pieces such as the S533 R Chair, the MR Table and the iconic Barcelona Chair, Mies van der Rohe’s work has been honoured with places in permanent exhibitions across the world, including at Berlin’s Neue Nationalgalerie that he designed himself.
