Mondial (Gispen)

Gerrit Rietveld   |  1958

 


 

Rietveld designed the Mondial chair for the 1958 World Exhibition in Brussels. The design is the perfect combination of minimalism and innovation. Slender and powerful at once, the Mondial has a beautiful profile. The chair was re-issued in 2006 by Rietveld Originals in cooperation with Gispen.
