About Gerrit Thomas Rietveld

As one of the advocates of De Stijl (“The Style”), an early 20th century Dutch artistic movement, furniture designer and architect Gerrit Thomas Rietveld championed simple geometry and a palette restricted to primary colors, black, and white. Rietveld’s two most enduring legacies are the Red and Blue Chair, which looks almost like a 3D version of a Piet Mondrian painting, and the Rietveld Schroder House, for which it was specifically designed. Built in Utrecht in 1924 and originally commissioned without walls, the Schroder House has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2000. The iconic chair, like the iconic house, was designed for visual balance, or as Rietveld himself said, so that “no part dominates or is subordinate to the others.”
