Rietveld-inspired beach chair by Mal Furniture

Beach chair rietveld

The answer to being the envy of all design aficionados at the beach this year surely comes in the form of this Gerrit Rietveld-inspired beach chair by Mal Furniture

It's a particularly quirky piece of design. Mal Furniture are a Dutch company that specialise in placing icons of the past into new contexts. In this case, they've taken a distinctive Dutch piece of furniture – Rietveld's colourful chair from c.1917 – and made it more beach, rather than gallery, suitable. 

This particular version is made from oakwood, and the soft seat is made from water and UV-resistant canvas. And, of course, the chair is available in just one colour combination! 

You'll need to watch the ice cream on this design though – it's priced at 499 euros.
