Crate Desk, Gerrit Rietveld, Cassina
Rare 'Crate' desk, designed in 1934 by Gerrit Rietveld. The Crate series was originally made of rests of packing materials and was Rietveld's answer to the economic crisis of the 1930's. The offered piece was manufactured in the 1970's by Cassina. A certificate of authenticity from the gallery the previous owner bought the desk from is present.
