Crate Chairs by Gerrit Rietveld - 1940s

login first to see price


Black crate chairs by Gerrit Rietveld, crafted circa 1960 in the Netherlands, these chairs are a testament to Rietveld's avant-garde approach to furniture design. As a pioneering figure in the De Stijl movement, Rietveld revolutionized the concept of traditional craftsmanship with his radical creations. Constructed from standard lumber size planks, they showcase Rietveld's belief in the inherent strength and durability of packing materials. Despite facing criticism for their departure from conventional workmanship, Rietveld remained true to his dedication to functionality and simplicity. Each chair is individually priced and has a distinctive patina. With four available, this collection offers a chance to own the enduring legacy of the De Stijl movement.

Gerrit Thomas Rietveld (1888–1964) was more than a furniture designer: he was an architectural maverick and a leading figure in the Dutch artistic movement De Stijl. His contributions to modern design transcend boundaries, shaping the landscape of 20th-century aesthetics. Rietveld's philosophy emphasized the purity of form and the integration of art into everyday life. Through his innovative use of materials and geometric abstraction, he challenged conventional norms and redefined the essence of design. His legacy lives on through timeless creations like the Black Crate Chairs, reminding us of the enduring power of simplicity and innovation in the world of design.
