Ludwig Mies van der Rohe Stainless Steel Barcelona Table by Knoll in Freak Hansen

The base is fabricated of premium grade 202 bar stock stainless steel and the top is thick, clear polished plate glass with 1/8" beveled edge.

Someone heavily involved in the Mies catalogue raisonne project has personally confirmed that these chairs are in fact authentic Barcelona chairs manufactured by the German Company, Waldemar Stiegler, which produced the flat-steel furniture for Knoll International European market in the 1950's. The chairs originated from the estate of Heinz and Mirka Nösselt in Berlin who were part of the Bauhaus. There is some speculation that these chairs could possibly be earlier but it seems the Stiegler attribution is what the majority consensus has ruled. The chairs are being sold as a pair and show quite a bit of character and patina.
