Crate Lounge Chair


Brand : Hay

Designer : Gerrit Thomas Rietveld


The Crate lounge chair is part of HAY’s collection of wooden outdoor furniture. The dining chair gets its sturdy character from clean and balanced lines. The deep seat and tilted backrest ensure not only a stylish appearance but also ultimate comfort, which can be even further improved with plush seat cushions, sold separately.

The Crate terrace chair is based on the original chair designed by Dutch architect and designer Gerrit Thomas Rietveld in 1934. At that time, the chair was made from leftover wooden shipping crates, but the Rietveld Originals and HAY reinterpretation uses lacquered pine as the material. Finished with a weatherproof coating, the Crate lounge chair is ideal for outdoor spaces from the terrace to the garden and balcony, but will also delight indoors, in private homes and public spaces alike.

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 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.
