you might not know mies van der rohe

but i bet you know this chair

That ultra modern american classic is the Barcelona Chair and it was designed by the architectural master Mies Van Der Rohe. He’s a hero of contemporary design helping pave the way for the streamlined efficient and simple esthetic that many of us incorporate into our daily lives and surroundings. He wasn’t just about furniture. Mies (born Ludwig Mies) is the maestro of hundreds of iconic homes and buildings including the Farnsworth house below. His use of geometry and his ability to rethink space and function made him one of our worlds most influential lifestyle architects.

While he never really ventured into clothing or accessories, his style certainly influenced a great many designers over the years. The peeps over at Cassius eyewear recognize that influence and recently released their latest style called the Mies inspired by it’s namesake and his classic simple and cool esthetic. I think they are a pretty rad take on the Mies legacy and at $200.00 bucks for this limited edition pair, I’d say it’s pretty worth it. Get yours HERE before they’re gone.
