The woman behind the Barcelona Chair (II/ II)
Let’s continue reviewing the story of Lily Reich, the mind behind the Barcelona Chair.
At the time the Barcelona Collection was created (1927/1930), Ludwig Mies van der Rohe was sentimentally involved with Lilly Reich, a famous at that time Interior Designer, that has an interesting career at the moment. Indeed, Lilly Reich was the Artistic Director of the German Pavillion of the Barcelona International Exposition of 1929, where the Barcelona Collection was released. Reich and van der Rohe worked together on many projects, and their relationship extended for at least ten years until van der rohe emigrated to the US in 1938.
Nowadays, times has evolved and society wants that each person gets the credit that really deserves for their creations.
Was Lilly Reich the secret genius that inspired the Barcelona Chair? Sure that she has a lot to do with it.
