637 UTRECHT C90 Limited Edition
The artist Bertjan Pot has designed a fabric in Jacquard variants specifi cally for the Utrecht armchair to offer a contemporary reworking of this icon from 1935 designed by Gerrit T. Rietveld. The architecture of the armchair is reflected in the innovative manufacture of this BoxBlocks fabric, made from eight coloured threads, combined two at a time to create 19 colours designed to a template to follow the shape of the armchair. The fabric has a unique, perfectly balanced geometric pattern, in which the triangle combinations are never repeated. A homage to Dutch creativity, each BoxBlocks fabric covers limited edition in bespoke upholstery, numbered to guarantee Cassina authenticity.
