279 Beugel Chair Petroleum



Originally designed by Gerrit Thomas Rietveld in 1927 for the Dutch department store Metz & Co., the petroleum blue 279 Beugel Chair is today produced by Cassina in collaboration with Rietveld’s heirs.

Demonstrating Rietveld’s experimental approach to form, the chair is composed of just three elements: two identical looped steel frames and a curved seat. Cleverly fashioned using laminated wood, the elegantly-curved seat has been updated using 3D technology for a more ergonomic design.

One of the central characters of the de Stijl artistic movement, architect and furniture designer Gerrit Thomas Rietveld is most renowned for creating the original Red and Blue Chair early in his career. Rietveld went on to design iconic buildings such as the Schröder House in Utrecht and exhibit at the Bauhaus after receiving a personal invitation from its founder Walter Gropius.
