Last Friday I was quoted in The Wall Street Journal, in an article written by David Colman about the new book Mies, which chronicles the career of design legend Ludwig Mies van der Rohe.
Colman asserts “the book is most intent on reasserting Mies as a focal player in the International Style movement that revolutionized industrial architecture in the ’40s and ’50s, ushering in the reign of glass-and-steel boxes.”
The article goes on to sheds light on the 85 year history of the iconic and ubiquitous Barcelona chair.
Celebrated interior design Matthew Patrick Smyth, architect DD Allen and I all give our personal perspectives on how to best specify the classic piece in interiors today. It’s quite an interesting piece.

“That’s the question: how do you take something so ubiquitous and make it different?” – Perfect.
