Design iconic chair of all design chairs, this rare and worldwide known Zig Zag chair designed by one of the most important architects and designers Holland has ever known. The zig zag chair was originally designed in 1934 but was produced and made till now. There were several manufacturers, Rietveld, his cabinet maker Gerard van de Groenekan and now Cassina. Even after Gerrit Rietveld died, Gerard v.d. Groenekan made several chairs. V.d. Groenekan was Rietvelds carpenter and he made most his chairs after the first few.
This is for an important chair designed by Rietveld, made by Gerard van de Groenekan 1960. This chair is made of elm wood and solid brass bolds and nuts. The chair is in amazing original condition with only minimal wear due to age and usage. This chair is still preserving the original and authentic patina because it is in pristine condition.
Provenance: this chair comes from a set of 2 chairs and were purchased by previous owner Dhr Leuven on auction in 1983 where several other pieces by Gerard van de Groenekan were on auction and they were also made in 1960. These chairs have been in his possession until 2010 when we purchased them. No further provenance is known but we have been able to trace back the age of the chairs to 1960 as chairs were brand marked after Rietvelds death in 1964, these examples are unmarked and most likely sold by Metz & Co at the time.
