Very important chair in modern design history, this ultra rare and worldwide known Zig Zag chair designed by one of the most important architects and furniture makers, designers Holland has ever known. This is probably one of the most known design chairs ever. It was originally designed in 1934 but was produced and made till now. There were several manufacturers, Rietveld, hish cabinet maker 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.

Provenance: This pair of chairs comes from as set of 6 purchased by architect Dhr Wijnhof who was a partner from Architect van Dillen who did a lot of projects with Rietveld. We purchased these 2 chairs from Marieke Beijsens – Wijnhof, the daughter of Dhr Wijnhof. The chairs were ordered at Van de Groenekan in 1960 but because of the popularity of the chairs these were delivered in ca. 1965 shortly after Rietveld died. The chairs are in fantastic original condition and both have the vd Groenekan brandmark on the undersides of the seats.
