designer Mies van der Rohe. The Pavilion is a combined bird bath and bird table,
made of hardwood acacia and inspired by one of Mies van der Rohe’s masterpieces – the renowned Barcelona Pavilion from the 1929 Expo.
Another great work of Mies van der Rohe's is the Farnsworth House located in Plano, Illinois, which he began in 1946. According to the Farnsworth House web site, " the Farnsworth House embodies a certain aesthetic culmination in Mies van der Rohe's experiment with this building type. This house is perhaps the fullest expression of modernist ideals that had begun in Europe, but which were consummated on Plano, Illinois."

"The bird table and bath is inspired by the building Mies van der Rohe designed for the World Expo in 1929 – the Barcelona Pavilion. This example of his work is one of my personal favorites because of the extraordinary materials, geometric simplicity and the large basin reflecting the architecture,” explains Bjarne Hansen.
