Overview

Gerrit T. Rietveld designed the Utrecht Armchair in 1935 while working for the Metz & Co. department store in Amsterdam. His brief was to make a chair for serial production. Taking market needs into account and privileging a comfortable experience, Rietveld decided to treat the elements of the chair as separate units. As a consequence, the chair became an icon of both the Neo-Plastic movement and of Rietveld’s experimental vision.

With the Utrecht XL Armchair, Cassina offers a new reinterpretation of the iconic model, an anthropometric response to the increasing sizes of modern generations.

  • Frame seat and backrest in steel rod with elastic bands
  • Poplar wood armrests
  • Black plastic feet
  • Polyurethane foam and polyester padding
