I love classic chair design and happened upon a seating arrangement of four copies of the Mies van der Rohe "Barcelona" chair in the lobby of a building on Marion Street. I've heard he based his design on an Egyptian folding chair. It was introduced at the International Exposition in Barcelona in 1929. I like the design not only for its timeless elegant lines, but because it is truly comfortable seating.
