This is a zig zag chair designed by Gerrit Rietveld in the ‘30’s. I just love its’ dramatic and graphic look. The original is very small. This one is larger than the original by about ten percent so that I could use it as a side table. I’ve seen original versions of his crate chair and his red/blue chair but I’ve never seen an original zig zag chair. Those cantilevered mitre joints just don’t stand up to use! They’ll be plenty strong enough for its’ use as a table though. The stain was created by using two coats of strong tea and it was finished with two coats of poly.
