Sometimes, when you only have primary and limited materials to work with, the most beautiful objects are created. ‘Thanks to Gerrit’ is a collaboration between 'Trapper Joe' and Gerrit Rietveld. I introduced them to each other and I played the role of mediator between the craftsman and the designer. The 'Thanks to Gerrit’ is made of chestnut wood, a wood native to our region. The chair is traditionally produced, therefore the production can easily be extended. This can avoid long delivery times but also unnecessary transportation.
