Vintage Reproduction Berlin Chair by Gerrit Rietveld, 1970s, The Netherlands

$533.00 $1,785.00

A lesser known design by Dutch designer Gerrit Rietveld, the designer famous for the Red and Blue Chair.

Gerrit Rietveld was a furniture designer and architect associated with the avant-garde movement known as De Stijl (The Style). Influenced by the abstract paintings of Piet Mondrian, Rietveld's work emphasized pure geometric form and primary colors.

In 1923, Rietveld worked with the painter Vilmos Huszár to design a model room - a total "Neoplastic" environment - for the Juryfreie Kunsthau, an art exhibition in Berlin. His furniture for the room included this chair from which it received its name. The traditional elements - legs, arms, seat and back - have been abandoned in favor of a system of interrelated planes, asymmetrically balanced. The armrest is broad enough to serve as a table - both right-hand and left-hand versions were made. Each element is painted in a single color, the palette reduced to monochromatic black, white and gray.

These examples, a complementing pair, are unmarked and by an unknown maker, crafted in plywood rather than oak. They were sourced in The Netherlands and are a great example of the design, and have a characterful vintage patina.
