In 1929 Barcelona was host to the World Arts Fair, and the German government commissioned Mies to design the German Pavilion at Montjuic as part of the exposition. Mies also designed the chairs used in it, the “Barcelona chair”. The chairs served as thrones for the King and Queen of Spain when they visited. The Barcelona bench is an extension of the collection, following the same design principles.
