Gerrit Rietveld was one of the first Dutch designers to use plywood, which is made of multiple thin layers of wood veneer bonded together and pressed under great pressure into a particular form. This chair consists of three interconnected U-shapes. The outer dimensions form an imaginary cube. A strict geometric order thus also underlies the rounded forms.
