Gerrit Thomas Rietveld

Description

Gerrit Thomas Rietveld Furniture does not merely reinvent—It reorders furniture’s genetic code (so to speak...)

Although Gerrit Thomas Rietveld pieces appear emblematic of one-of-a-kind gallery installations, Rietveld actually designed them to be more like Thonet’s iconic café chair; which is to say—easily converted to mass production. Part of the early 20th-Century Dutch movement known as De Stijl, pieces like Rietveld’s 1917 Red-Blue chair ingeniously captured the movement’s ideals of pure abstraction, primary color, and reduced form. Likewise, if the Red-Blue chair reminds you of the modular artwork of Piet Mondrain, that’s strictly by design; Mondrain was also an ardent adherent of De Stijl.
