Manufacturer / Cassina

Designer / Gerrit Thomas Rietveld

Description

Gerrit T. 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, and of Rietveld’s experimental vision. The chair is also available in fabric or leather, with blanket or zig-zag top- stitching, in both cases in five colours.
