Many architects and furniture designers of the Bauhaus era were intent on providing well-designed homes and impeccably manufactured furnishings for the "common man". in 1955, Barba Corsini, a leading functionalist architect, realised his contemporary vision through his renovation of the loft space and the furnishings he custom designed for "La Pedrera", originally designed by Antoni Gaudi who is generally considered the great master of Spanish Modernism.
Corsini was a great admirer of Finnish architecture which he believed to be the finest in Europe on account of the powerful simplicity of the designs. 'Powerful simplicity' is indeed an apt description of Corsini's personal design style, as represented by the Pedrera series.
