RIETVELD GERRIT: THE COMPLETE WORKS, by Marijke Kuper; Ida van Zijl - 1992


Gerrit Rietveld: The Complete Works 1888-1964 

by Marijke Kuper & Ida van Zijl 

As architect and designer, Gerrit Rietveld (Utrecht, 1888-1964) is one of the great international figures of the 20th century. His work was basically user-friendly and he always tried to see architecture as something for people. Reacting against the conventions with which he had grown up, the driving force behind Rietveld's development became a quest for the essentials of architecture and design. This led in 1918 to the now over-familiar Red Blue Chair and six years after that to the internationally acclaimed Rietveld Schroeder House. This house, built in 1924, signified both an end and a beginning in Rietveld's career.
