Gerrit T. Rietveld
Armchair and curved sofa with steel supporting frame.
Polyurethane foam and polyester padding.
Fabric upholstery of certain types only (see our price list), with white fine stitching. Feet in black plastic material.
A dissection into geometric planes and surfaces is evident in the new version of the Utrecht sofa as well. In keeping with Rietveld’s spirit of freedom, change and innovation Cassina introduces, in addition to the curved sofa already in the collection, and in agreement with his heirs, a two and three-seater sofa characterised by a straight backrest that can be rested against a wall. An interpretation that highlights the graphic rhythm and separation of structural elements that are recurrent themes in Rietveld’s work.
Great masters for the little ones
Baby Utrecht, for a family Christmas
This Christmas Cassina presents the Baby Utrecht armchair for the smaller family members.
The iconic Utrecht armchair, designed in 1935 by the architect Gerrit T. Rietveld and produced exclusively by Cassina since 1988, has been proposed for the holiday season in a 30% smaller version, result of the work carried out in close collaboration with the heirs of the Dutch master.
The Baby Utrecht, which conserves the same characteristics as the original armchair such as the visible white stitching, has been ergonomically adapted for children from approximately 3 to 8 years old.
This new interpretation is available in an easy to wash yellow, red and blue faux leather, the ‘pure’ colours typical of the neoplasticism movement and present in many of Rietveld’s projects, as well as two types of red fabric.
Baby Utrecht is available at the best Cassina dealers worldwide from November 2015.
Take away design as a gift idea
In addition to the Baby Utrecht, Cassina offers to its dealers a series of small objects for their holiday window displays including the miniature models from the LC Collection (Le Corbusier, Jeanneret, Perriand) and the Réaction Poétiqueaccessories by Jaime Hayon: take away gift ideas that can be easily transported in their specially designed boxes.
Baby Utrecht, kick off for the C90 celebrations, 2016-2017
The Baby Utrecht armchair is the first proposal of a more ample package of products that Cassina will present in the new year as a preview of the preparations for the company’s extensive 90th anniversary celebration programme (1927-2017).
