Originally designed in 1963 by Rietveld for the Steltman jewelry shop in The Hague, the first left and right-handed pair was not completed until after Rietveld's death in 1964. This mirrored and leather-lined pair is now in the Kröller-Müller Museum in Otterlo, the Netherlands. In subsequent years, Gerard Van De Groenekan hand-built a small series of the chair in white-washed or grey-lacquered-oak. It appears that there are more right-handed versions that were executed, probably because of client demand. Van de Groenekan passed away in 1994.
