Here is a handmade Gerrit Rietveld-designed Zigzag Chair. I made this in accordance with Rietveld's published design. This is NOT an officially licensed Cassina version of the Zigzag Chair.

The chair, designed in 1934, is constructed of a single 20mm thick solid poplar board. It is painted with high gloss vermillion enamel bordered by a gloss white alkyd stripe around the edge. The approximate dimensions are 29 1/4" H x 15" W x 17 1/4" D.

Rietveld was an early proponent of inexpensive production methods, new materials, prefabrication and standardization. Many of his furniture designs were groundbreaking DIY templates and some "Crate" furniture items were sold as kits to be assembled by the buyer, novel ideas for his time.

The designer specified that the chair be finished in one of three ways: clear satin lacquer; translucent white with a gloss lacquer coating; or gloss vermillion (not too orange, as he put it) with a white stripe along its edge.

Each piece is custom made-to-order. Please allow 3-5 weeks for manufacturing. The price is for local pick up only. I can help you arrange shipping. I offer standard crating services as well as white glove delivery within a 100-mile radius (pricing will vary).
