Rietveld’s first piece of crate furniture dates back to 1934. He initially produced these pieces himself and later sold them both in finished form and as DIY packs. Rietveld made a point of producing affordable and comfortable furniture, and he achieved this by finding the right proportions and seat angle. In 1935, Metz & Co. brought a series of crate furniture piece on the market as “Weekend Furniture”. Later Cassina also produced a series of Rietveld crate furniture. Today Rietveld Originals has several crate chairs in the collection. An indoor, outdoor and a junior version of the chair.
