barcelona chair

the inspiration behind the chair below, and for any upcoming posts about my studio project, is this, Mies van der Rohe's Barcelona chair.  our brief for class is, natch, brief: design a timeless, elegant, and classic chair inspired by the design of a classic.  

the Barcelona chair had the most hooks to its story (maybe the most famous chair... designed for the German Pavilion in 1929... cool materials...), and I happen to like it, so it got the nod.
