'Steltman' chair after Gerrit Rietveld,
The Steltman chair stands as Gerrit Rietveld's final design, created when he was 75 years old, once again showcasing his pioneering prowess as a designer. The name of the chair originates from Steltman, the prestigious jeweler and royal purveyor, who commissioned Rietveld in 1963 to renovate and furnish his shop in The Hague, Netherlands. The asymmetrical chair, presenting an intriguing image from every angle, was crafted entirely with lines and planes, exemplifying Rietveld's design philosophy. Today, the Steltman chair remains a genuine design classic, a testament to Rietveld's innovative ideas.
This model is sourced from the Netherlands and unmarked, crafted from solid oak, and remains in good vintage condition, displaying only minor surface signs of use.
