Back in the 20s and 30s Rietveld furniture designs were ground-breaking both visually and from a production stand-point. Rietveld’s Beugelstoel chair was designed and produced in 1930, and 90 years later Cassina pays tribute to the chair with a modified version.
The new piece is a bit sleeker and lighter by using 15mm tubing instead of the original 18mm. it also boasts of more correct and ergonomic lines achieved with 3D technologies. Made from two bent pipe structures with a simple molded plywood seat joining them, the Beugel Chair of 2018 pays homage to a designer whose vision was truly a century ahead (in his 130th birth year), and a chair that was arguably the first to use thin, bent metal as a structural base.
Such a chair will fit both a modern or a mid-century modern space due to its universal geometric look and a comfortable seat. There are many colors and finishes available, and that geometric base is great for many rooms, so you’ll easily find what you need. Add some timeless chic to your interior with Beugel Chair!
