DESIGN : GERRIT THOMAS RIETVELD (1942)
The Armchair for Metz&Co was named after the Amsterdam based department store Metz&Co for which Rietveld designed this chair in 1942. As early as in 1932 Metz&Co asked Rietveld to design a showroom for his furniture on top of their building in Amsterdam. It was in this showroom in the Netherlands where Le Corbusier, Mies van der Rohe and later Pol Kjaerholm presented their contemporary designs for the first time.
The beautifully crafted frame of the chair was designed with thin slats of oak. The seat consists of a polyurethane foamed frame with a comfortable pad on top. Any color of the Kvadrat Remix collection can be chosen for the lower part of the foamed seat. Any color of the Kvadrat Steelcut (Trio) or Divina (Melange/DM) collection can be chosen for upholstery of the upper pad. The edges of the upper pad are finished with blanket stitches which give this historic chair a distinguished look!
The upper pad can be upholstered with Ohmann leather as well. Please contact us for a quote.
