Wim Rietveld (1924–1985) was a Dutch designer and son of the notable architect and designer Gerrit Rietveld. Like his father, Wim Rietveld carried on the tradition of groundbreaking furniture design. In the 1950s, Rietveld studied industrial design at the Hague Academy, and like many designers of the post-war era, he focused on functional minimalism with easily accessible materials.
Rietveld became famous for his stackable furniture and creating functional solutions for mass production. He also worked as the Head of Industrial Design at the University of Delft. Rietveld’s 1407 armchair won the gold medal at the 10th Milan Trienalle, and several of his designs, such as the Result chair and the Pyramid collection, have won the Signe d’Or award.
Wim Rietveld has designed pieces for the following brands:Hay
