Gerrit Thomas Rietveld Berlin Chair
  • Gerrit Thomas Rietveld Berlin Chair
After the Red-Blue Chair, the Berlin Chair is one of Rietveld’s most iconic works. He designed the chair for the 1923 ‘Juryfreie Kunstschau’ in Berlin in which Rietveld was responsible for the design and Vilmos Huszár for the colour composition.

As only the original scale model of the chair survives, it is unclear whether the chair was actually exhibited as a furniture piece at the time. In 1960, Rietveld designed two new versions of the chair for the boardroom of the National Academy of Visual Arts in Amsterdam. A cushion was added to the second version and the chairman’s chair had a higher back.

L x W x H: 57 x 71.5 x 100 cm.

Height of seat: 45 cm.

Armrest: left or right;
height 70 cm.

The Berlin chair is made of solid oak or beech panels, which are varnished in such a way that the structure of the wood remains visible. Available in the colour combination black, dark grey, grey and white.
