The architect Berlage designed this chair for Mr and Mrs Kröller-Müller as part of the furnishings for Sint Hubertus, their hunting lodge in the Hoge Veluwe National Park. The cross in the upholstery of the seat and back allude to St Hubert, patron saint of hunters. The stretcher between the front legs is curved inwards to make room for the sitter’s feet.
