Richard Hutten not only designs chairs, he also collects them. Since he graduated from the Design Academy in Eindhoven in 1990 he has been buying unusual chairs, or exchanging them with designer friends for his own designs. His collection now numbers more than a hundred items, from prototypes to the great design classics, from graduation projects to unique pieces. From March the Gemeentemuseum will be showing Hutten’s personal collection alongside chairs he has designed, like the Berlage chair based on a chair designed by architect H.P. Berlage. The exhibition will include scores of playful contemporary and conceptual designs by famous names from the Netherlands and abroad, each with its own personal story.
