Chair in polished natural cherrywood, in natural ashwood or ashwood stained blue, red, yellow, white, black with edge in natural ashwood.
Thanks to his use of diagonals, Rietveld was the first to introduce this new type of chair to the scene taking advantage of a new shape. Zig-zag is a chair with four panels that bend in sequence from top to bottom in an elegant dance to create what may at first seem an unstable chair but is in reality as firmly grounded as its design.
