To sit is also a verb

Was the famous quote of Gerrit Rietveld architect and designer of the two chairs you are seeing here.
His zig zag chair is famous of course but not so well know with armrests and it is made with a more lazy sitting angle.
This one from 1942 is made of aircraft aluminium and the punched holes were needed in order to give the sheet material the proper stiffness. All from the same exhibition as yesterday.

    I have to say i dont like any of them to sit on..but sure they are nice to look at:)))))

  3. Ah, I get it, very clever. I really like that (the zig zag.)

  4. Neither looks inviting or comfortable, although you don't really know until you sit in them. Perhaps better appreciated as sculpture.
