Kröller-Müller Chair


KRÖLLER-MÜLLER CHAIR We made two armchairs in the same material that we used for the shed made of scrap plywood which we placed in the park near the rear entrance of the Kröller-Müller Museum in Otterlo. In that sense, the story behind this chair is similar to the one behind the bucket seat from the tearoom/garden house. In the years that followed, a number of people expressed their enthusiasm about the prototype that was in the showroom. But we didn’t really feel the need to put the chair into production and, moreover, it turned out to be difficult to obtain suitable materials. I sometimes put aside unusual colours or types of plywood, only to discover that some miscreant used the material for the drawers of a scrap wood cupboard or even for simple carpentry work. Years later, in 2012, we had finally gathered enough pieces of wood to produce the chair in limited editions.
