Utrecht chair by Gerrit Thomas Rietveld for Cassina

Description

The iconic Utrecht Armchair by Dutch architect Gerrit Thomas Rietveld (1888-1964) for Cassina Italy. SOLD

Designed in 1935 the Utrecht armchair is a 20th Century design icon symbolising the interwar idealistic movement in the Netherlands known as De Stijl (or Neoplasticism) based on ideas of rationalism, utopia and abstraction, all precursors to modernism. Utrecht is characterised by a backrest and seat touching the ground and armrests that double as supports.

Fabrication Steel inner frame, birch plywood form, polyurethane foam, grosgrain black fabric with contrasting cucitura punto cavallo stitching, in natural.

Design Consigned Stylist The Utrecht lounge chair is comfortable and compact, an edgy design statement with a famous silhouette. Good for small spaces, by the fire or under your favourite abstract artwork. We love the Utrecht chair with the Hocker stool (see below)
