Description

Initially designed to make use of surplus wooden shipping crates by Dutch architect and designer Gerrit Rietveld in 1934, the Crate Collection has been relaunched in a Rietveld Originals x HAY collaboration. Made with respect for the original design, the Crate Dining Bench shares the same precisely balanced proportions and transparent construction to minimise production costs and optimise the assembly process. The classic bench design features a gently sloping back and seat with supportive armrests, its simplicity and spatial design mirroring the designer’s architectural principles – providing functionality and comfort without absorbing space. Crafted in solid pine, with a water-based lacquered finish in different colour options.

Crate Dining Bench is suitable for a wealth of outdoor settings, and can be supplemented with optional seat cushions in selected textiles for extra comfort.

Please note Furniture is flat packed.

Gerrit Thomas Rietveld (b. 1888) was a Dutch furniture designer and architect, born in Utrecht, Netherlands. He is especially known for his pioneering work in the field of modern design and is considered one of the most important designers of the 20th century. One of Rietveld's most famous works is the Red and Blue Chair, which he designed in 1917. The chair has a simple geometric design that reflects Rietveld's interest in abstraction and simplicity. The Red and Blue chair is still one of the masterpieces of modernist design and is exhibited in many museums around the world. In addition to furniture, Rietveld also designed several important buildings, including his own home, the Rietveld Schröder House in Utrecht.

Hay

HAY was founded in 2002. This marked the beginnings of the international ambition that HAY has pursued over the past decade: creating durable quality furniture at affordable prices to allow as many people as possible to enjoy excellent design. HAY looks back with pride at the age of Danish Modern, where quality, craftsmanship and humanistic design put Denmark on the global map, and they look with excitement to the future as they explore the current possibilities inherent in new technologies, new materials and new ways of living with furniture. At the heart of everything that HAY does is the notion that contemporary design should spring from a good idea, innovative technology and quality materials in combination with joyful, straightforward and uncomplicated aesthetics.
