Dirk vander Kooij in collaboration with Niek Schoenmakers

\ RvR-chair

The RvR-chair is the result of the collaboration between Niek Schoenmakers and Dirk vander Kooij. Niek was asked to re-furbish the major part of the ground floor of the Raad voor de Rechtspraak, a high-end government building in the centre of The Hague.

The historical building is a former bank-office from the beginning of the 20th century and was renovated in 2005. The building reflect the outspoken vision of the architect, combining historical elements with a contemporary design and custom made art and furniture. With a concern for the smallest details, every part of the building has been renovated to a high level of quality.

This specific attitude towards the building was the reason to work together with Dirk vander Kooij. His Flow chair was chosen for the reading table as a welcoming gesture for the visitors of the building. For the restaurant area, a new chair was needed. According to the wished of the client, Dirk designed a chair based on his previous design Chubby, but taking the technique a step further. Seat, back and frame are all made in one piece, with fluent lines and beautiful connections. The chair is his first stackable design.

A true design classic of the future.
