The Press Room Chair was designed in 1958 by Gerrit Rietveld for the UNESCO building in Paris. Rietveld designed the armchair as a comfortable lounge chair for journalists at the reading table in the pressroom. However, due to the tight budget and limited time, the design was not carried out and Rietveld was forced to replace it with furniture he had made for the Brussels World Exhibition earlier that year. Fortunately, the original designs, drawings and models have been preserved, which meant that the Press Room Chair was made available in 2014.
