The two-screw lap connection at the corners of this Barcelona stool date to the first years of production, produced by Josef Muller in Berlin. Originally designed in 1928 for the German Pavilion at the Barcelona World's Fair of 1929, the Barcelona stool stands as a timeless design. The screw bolted lap joint of the early examples was replaced in 1948 when the frame became welded throughout.
