Marcel Breuer, ‘Model B32’ chair

Marcel Breuer designed this chair before his architectural career really took off. The most striking parts of the chair are the long lengths of chromed tubular steel, which provide both the chair’s structure and much of its look. The cantilever support and use of modern industrial-looking material were revolutionary at the time. Though the hard look of the steel is softened by the cane and beech seat and back, the chair does not borrow from past styles. Versions of Breuer’s chair are still in production.
Breuer was trained and taught at the Bauhaus, the famous design school which promoted clean, simple, functional design and the use of standard, pre-fabricated materials and components. Like the chair, the Modern movement in architecture also eliminated moulding and ornament in favour of emphasising the surface finish of materials.

Mies van der Rohe. Farnsworth House. Plano Illinois

La Casa Farnsworth es una vivienda unifamiliar proyectada por Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. Situada en Plano (IllinoisEstados Unidos) y diseñada y construida entre 1946 y 1951, esta obra representa uno de los mejores ejemplos de la arquitectura de vivienda unifamiliar del siglo XX, y en general de la Arquitectura Internacional.

La casa, construida en acero y vidrio, es una muestra más del amor de Mies van der Rohe por la sencillez arquitectónica y la perfección en los detalles constructivos.

La casa es el resultado de un encargo de la Doctora Edith Farnsworth, en 1945, para construir un lugar de retiro de fin de semana. Las obras comenzaron en 1950, finalizándose en su mayor parte en 1951. Existe una amplia rumorología acerca de una posible relación romántica entre Mies y la Doctora Farnsworth, pero en cualquier caso la relación entre el arquitecto y la cliente desembocó en los tribunales, negándose ella a pagar parte de los costes de la vivienda —estimados originalmente en 58.000$, y que terminaron alcanzando los 73.000$1 —, bajo acusaciones de mala praxis. Mies ganó el juicio, pero el mobiliario de la casa, diseñado también por Mies, fue finalizado sin su supervisión.
