SOLD – Set of two Rietveld red and blue chairs, replica’s late 20th century


Two beautiful replica’s of the iconic red and blue chair of Gerrit Rietveld, 1923. The replica’s were made in the 1990’s, following the measures that were given by Rietveld himself in 1932. Interesting detail is that to one of the chairs is attached the by Rietveld precribed text of the poet Morgenstern, ‘Wenn Ich sitze, möchte Ich nicht sitzen, wie mein Sitzfleisch möchte, sondern wie mein Sitzgeist sich sässe Er, den Stuhl sich flöchte’. The red and blue is a favorite DIY-chair, but as a set rather rare. In very good condition, hard wood.rietveld
