Design iconic chair of all design chairs, this ultra rare and worldwide known ZigZag chair designed by one of the most important architects Holland has ever known. This is probably the most known design chair ever. It was originally designed in 1934 but was produced upon request several years. Even after Gerrit Rietveld died, Gerard v.d. Groenekan made several chairs. V.d. Groenekan was Rietvelds carpenter and he made all of his chairs after the first 1 or 2.

In the 1950s and 1960s you could buy Rietveld furniture at De Bijenkorf and V.d. Groenekan provided the chairs.
