Mies van der Rohe was required to "not use too much glass," in the German Pavilion of 1929. The creative proposal is an exploration that uses glass as the key element, pushing the limits of the material to the maximum.

Two large chaise longue chairs extend from the travertine floor, fixed on a small base cut by a unique curved glass sheet. The two materials come together to become sculptural and functional pieces of furniture. At the same time, a new glass column adds to the eight metallic ones in the pavilion.

In the outside water mirror, a new fountain of curved glass seems to bend the water, highlighting the importance of natural materials in the production of new objects.
