Utrecht armchair by Gerrit T Rietveld
Dutch architect Gerrit T Rietveld originally designed the Utrecht armchair in 1935 for a department store in Amsterdam. Designed for large-scale distribution, the chair was conceived as four puzzle-like parts that could be assembled on site.
Its composition is made up of a generous seat with a reclining backrest and two angular armrests that double as the front legs.
The chair is seen as an example of the neoplasticism art movement, which is characterised by the use of bright colours and austere geometries.
