More info

Gerrit Thomas Rietveld (1888 -1964) is one of the greatest Dutch architects and designers of all time. Son of a carpenter, Rietveld was trained by his father as a cabinetmaker before setting up his own workshop in 1917. In 1919 he embarked on a career as an architect and joined the 'De Stijl' movement, which helped define his progressive style. Rietveld's avant-garde approach focused on adapting and adjusting architecture to people's lifestyles, constantly seeking harmony between architecture and interior.

The first CRATE collection dates back to 1934, when the designer had the idea of creating modern, functional furniture from surplus wooden crates. His aim was to create well-designed, affordable furniture for the general public, and this is also HAY's aim in this Rietveld Originals x HAY collaboration.

The new CRATE collection indeed shares the same aesthetic strength, and precisely balanced proportions, with its simplicity and spatial design reflecting the designer's harmonious architectural sense. Made of solid pine and protected by a covering, the various elements of this collection (chairs, coffee tables and side tables) are ideal for outdoor use, whether in public spaces or private gardens.
