The ZagZig chair responds to your movements. Handcrafted in Detroit, and made from sustainably grown and harvested plywood, the ZagZig Chair is formaldehyde-free. Because each ZagZig Chair is made-to-order (shown in a clear low-sheen lacquer), it is available in a wide variety of custom colors & finishes.
The ZagZig chair is a surprisingly comfortable piece of furniture due to the inherent springiness of the structure. Sit in it and it responds to your movements. Whether you are rocking gently back and forth or side to side, or some combination of the two, this chair gently but firmly allows for movement. In fact, it is almost impossible to sit still in it; you just want to move! That’s part of the reason for its other name: The ADHD.
First made from solid elm wood by Gerrit Rietveld in 1934 and called the Zigzag chair, our version is constructed from 88 pieces of precisely machined Baltic birch plywood which are doweled, glued and nailed together. The pictured chair is finished in clear, low-sheen lacquer. A variety of other colors and finishes are available. We can also create a custom color, or custom match furniture you own, for an additional charge.

Each piece of furniture is handcrafted by American workers in our woodshop in the Russell Industrial Center, located in the heart of the City of Detroit. Because each piece of furniture is made-to-order, we are able to offer a wide variety of colors and finishes. We can also create a custom color, or custom match furniture you own, for an additional charge of $500.
Mobel Link Furniture is constructed from beautiful and durable Baltic birch plywood. If you would prefer to have all-American content in your furniture, we can also make your piece out of American-made “ApplePly” brand plywood, manufactured by States Industries located in Eugene, Oregon. (As this product is more costly, please expect a small up-charge.) Please call to inquire about prices if you wish to have your furniture made-to-order from a wood product other than Baltic birch.
