Rietveld's Utrecht Chair with Wooden Frame - 1960s
DESCRIPTIONUtrecht chair, Gerrit Rietveld, architect edition 1960s, wenge frame, upholstery. Gerrit Rietveld came up with the design for the Utrecht armchair in 1935 while working for the Metz & Co. department store in Amsterdam, where his brief was to make a chair for serial production. Taking market needs into account, while privileging a comfortable and relaxing experience, led to the elements of the chair being treated as separate units. As a consequence, the chair became an icon of both the Neoplastic movement (aka De Stijl), and of Rietveld’s experimental vision. Price for the pair.
