Gerrit Thomas Rietveld  was a Dutch furniture designer and architect. One of the principal members of the Dutch artistic movement called “De Stijl”, Rietveld is famous for his Red and Blue Chair. He aimed for simplicity in construction and was invited by Walther Gropius to exhibit at the Bauhaus.

It is the minimalist nature of the slim steel framing which lies so close to the heart of “De Stijl” and the “Bauhaus movement”. The integrity of the materials is neatly presented. The steel surfaces are not completely slick. This displays the material itself in its most natural form.
