Steltman Chair by Gerrit Rietveld, reproduction
name: Steltman Chair
designer: Gerrit Rietveld
design year: 1963
In 1963 Rietveld was commissioned by the jeweller Johannes Steltman to renovate his shop in the Hague. This chair was specially designed for choosing wedding rings.
Gerrit Rietveld is well known for publicising his drawings and plans in magazines and books. Since then every handymen and carpenter in the Netherlands has set to; maker unknown. Originals are in the Rijksmuseum and the Kröller-Müller Museum. This chair has nothing to do with the good man except that it is made according to his instructions. Reproduction, fake, imitation, your choice.
Our chair dates from the 1990s, and has very mild signs of wear, scuffs and nicks as well as patina. This Dutch Design Classic is in great vintage condition. Heavy wood, probably oak, painted black.
