Crate dining table, L230 cm.


Brand : Hay

Designer : Gerrit Thomas Rietveld


The Crate dining table is part of HAY’s collection of wooden outdoor furniture. The sturdy Crate table is characterised by its clean and balanced lines, which give the dining table an architectural and elegant look. The table pairs perfectly with HAY’s Crate chairs, but also steals the spotlight as a companion to other patio furniture – try how the pine table would sit alongside HAY’s classic Balcony and  Palissade dining chairs.

The first Crate table was designed by Dutch architect and designer Gerrit Thomas Rietveld in 1934. At that time, the Crate furniture was made from leftover wooden shipping crates – hence the name of the collection. Today, Rietveld Originals and HAY use lacquered pine as the material. Finished with a weatherproof coating, the long Crate dining table is ideal for all kinds of outdoor spaces from the terrace to the garden and balcony.

Please note Furniture is flat packed.

The wood has been dried to a humidity specifically for outdoor use, which enables it to withstand outdoor conditions. Therefore, HAY recommends that it is only used outdoors to avoid risk of wood shrinkage.

Material: Water-based lacquered solid Radiata pinewood. Treated with an outdoor lacquer in 3 layers; a primer and two layers of topcoat.

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 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.
