Utrecht is the uber-rational face of the Neoplastic movement. Originally designed in 1935 by Gerrit Rietvield, it stood in stark contrast to the stuffy loungers of the time, serving up sharp angles and surprising ergonomics. Look closely and you’ll notice that the backrest and seat meet at the floor, from which parallel armrests morph upwards as stylish supports for tired arms. Energising and eccentric, it’s remained a classic ever since its inception, and can always be relied upon to inject fresh life into lacklustre living spaces.
