DESIGN : GERRIT THOMAS RIETVELD (1934)
Well known Dutch architect and interior designer, Gerrit Rietveld, designed the first piece of crate furniture in 1934. Initially these pieces were produced and assembled by himself, but later sold them as DIY packages as well. Rietveld made a point of producing affordable and comfortable furniture, and he achieved this by finding the right proportions and seat angle. During the years, Metz & Co. and Italian manufacturer Cassina had produced several series of the crate chairs. The crate furniture series consists of indoor and outdoor models, originally unvarnished.
Nowadays, a smaller version of the crate chair is produced by Rietveld Originals in The Netherlands, suitable for children up to 6 years of age. It is packaged in a gift box and is available in three colors, red, black and natural beech wood. The chair needs to be assembled by the user.
The chair is made of solid beech wood. Screws and assembly tool are included in the package.
