Serralunga Barceloneta Chair - classic Barcelona Chair gets an update
Yes, at first glance it does indeed look like the classic Barcelona Chair by Mies van der Rohe. But it's actually a new design, the Serralunga Barceloneta Chair.
Think of it as a Barcelona for the modern era, with designer Raffaella Mangiarotti using a mix of polyurethane and aluminium to produce a chair both indoor or outdoor use, slimming down the design so it's abel to stack up too - see over the page for an idea of how that works. He even keeps that 'quilted' leather look for the seating by using a sophisticated 'rotating moulding system' that's apparently no easy thing to do.
Plenty of colours available, all priced around £654.
