MI36 | Footstool
Stool with frame in chrome plated flat bar steel. Suspension inhide straps. Seat and backrest in expanded foam lined with polyester fiber.
This stool, together with the armchair, was designed for the Barcelona International Exhibition of 1929 for which Mies designed the German pavilion including the furniture. Two armchairs of this model were to have been used by the King and Queen of Spain during their official visit to the pavilion to sign the guest book. They were initially produced by Berliner Metallgewerbe Joseph Müller, and from 1931 by Bamberg Metalwerkstätten.
