The ‘Leidsche Rijn College’ (LRC), in the suburbs of the same name near Utrecht, was designed by Wiel Arets. The design of the façade is striking. This is characterised by alternating rectangular, grey-black concrete areas with rectangular windows, which have strong, light grey frames. The interior is neutral and predominantly white. Arets designed special furniture for the college, with a modest design, but an especially fine finish: the LRC Chair. This is produced from white plastic and is a lightweight. The new wooden model was based on this LRC Chair and it consists of a frame made out of bevelled, laminated wood with a layer of wood veneer. This chair is comfortable to sit on and is suitable for both the office and at home.
LRC Chair is a chair with striking lines, made with walnut or oak veneer. Dimensions 47 x 52 x 84 cm.
Design: Wiel Arets (2004).
