Gispen 116 chair by Wim Rietveld

The Gispen 116 chair has a rod-steel frame. Both the seat and back are of beech plywood mounted on shock-absorbing rubber discs. The Gispen 216 was another of Wim Rietveld's designs. It is almost identical in appearance to the model 116 chair, the one difference being the straight black Bakelite armrests. Both the 116 and 216 chairs were recognised as aesthetically pleasing, solid, practical and inexpensive - qualities that had wide appeal.
