Mies van der Rohe's Birthday Feted With Barcelona Couch Cake

To celebrate what would have been the great, late Ludwig Mies van der Rohe's 125th birthday, the Mies van der Rohe society held a lively soiree at Crown Hall, one of the architect's landmarked designs in Chicago.

Iconic '30s furniture never looked so delicious! Reddit has a pic of another delectable option.
