Mies Society Event - Interiors: Lilly Reich and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe

February 4, 2021

Lilly Reich (1886–1947) was a German modernist designer and a close collaborator of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe (1886–1969) for more than 10 years in the late 1920s and 1930s. Together, they designed modern furniture as part of larger architectural commissions, such as the Barcelona Pavilion in 1929 and the Tugendhat House in Brno, Czech Republic. Two of their best known modern furniture designs from this period are the Barcelona Chair and the Brno Chair. The Mies Society and Illinois Institute of Technology College of Architecture will host this virtual lecture to take a deep dive dive into their work.
