Gerrit Rietveld Chocolate Brown Leather Utrecht armchairs in fantastic condition. Rietveld, Dutch architect with a strong bent for experimentation, and one of the founders, with Mondrian, of the neo-plastic ‘de Stijl’ movement in 1917. Rietveld designed the Utrecht model in 1935. This model was created for the Metz & co department store in Amsterdam, hence conceived for the mass market, and represents Rietveld’s decision to adopt a more ‘market oriented’ approach to comfort and relaxation. The chairs have the Cassina label and the Cassina certificates come with the chairs. The sculptural Utrecht chairs have their original leather upholstery and are in excellent condition.
