Cassina Red-Blue Chair

  • The Red-Blue Chair is Rietveld’s most famous piece of furniture. The first design of this chair dates back to 1917. With this lounge chair, Rietveld reduced the traditional armchair to 13 square-profiled battens, two armrests with a rectangular profile and two rectangular panels that form the seat and the back rest. As such, he stripped the traditional chair of its volume and emphasized functionality. Rietveld added the colors red, blue, yellow and black around 1923 and removed the side panels. It was during this period that he was active at De Stijl, where he had previously published comparable colored interiors.
