This Mini Barcelona Chair Celebrates Mies with 3D Printing Tech

The recliner that Mies van der Rohe designed for the Barcelona Pavilion in 1929 has long been an icon, and in the form of the Mini Barcelona Chair, it can be easily integrated into your home decor as a symbol of truly beautiful design.

Shapeways shop owner kspence reproduces a wide range of prominent modernist seats shrunken down, in this case at a scale of 1:12. The broad lounger and its accompanying ottoman are 3D-printed with incredible detail: the cushions are produced with quilted features and finished in black, while the frames have metallic looks. The Mini Barcelona Chair even appears to have textile textures with its grainy feel, making it an engaging object to behold. At $28 each, you could furnish a doll house with this, but I'd be more inclined to put it on display.
