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.
