‘A design classic is a work that in its conception, use of materials and visual impact transcends time. Mies van der Rohe’s strong and comfortable “Barcelona” chair [(1); manufactured by Knoll, 1929]; Shiro Kuramata’s surprising and romantic “Miss Blanche” acrylic resin chair [(2); 1988]; and Zaha Hadid’s magical “Liquid Glacial” acrylic table [(3); 2012], which is a model of its time and represents forward thinking in terms of materials, combined with the best technology.’
