A grey polyester lounge chair model No. 416 designed by Wim Rietveld (son of Gerrit Thomas Rietveld) and Andre Cordemeyer for Gispen, Culemborg 1957. This first Dutch polyester armchair was made of on piece of moulded polyester, a new technique for the Dutch furniture making market. This experimental chair was a success and the start of something beautiful. The seat is supported by a tubular solid metal frame with rubber shockmounts. This chair has an amazing dark grey color with visible fibers and is in very nice authentic condition.
