Gerrit Rietveld style slat chair with canvas Holland 1950





Very nice and unusual slat chair designed and made by unknown manufacturer, Holland 1950. This chair was for sure inspired by several chairs designed by Gerrit Thomas Rietveld in de Stijl period. When I first saw this chair years ago I thought it was a self made chair, but now few years later we found this exact same chair so it has to be some kind of small production. I think it was a do-it-yourself chair inspired by the works of Gerrit Rietveld. Ofcourse the construction is very similar to the world famous Red Blue chair but this one is designed so everyone could actually fix it. The Canvas seat is very similar to a metal pipe chair Rietveld designed in 1927. So whoever designed this chair paid close attention to the works from Rietveld. This chair is made of solid beech, black lacquered and the canvas seat had a purple striped seating cushion and head pillow for extra comfort. The chair is in very good original condition and seats very comfortable. A very nice and lovely chair for a lover of this style, I sure like it a lot!
