    The Zig Zag chair is an iconic piece of furniture designed by the Dutch designer Gerrit Thomas Rietveld in 1934. It consists of a seat composed of three wooden planks assembled in a Z-shape, to which a fourth plank is joined for the back. This chair is a product of the minimalist and constructivist “De Stijl” movement.
