Description:
 

As a member of Neoplasticism, dutch designer Gerrit Rietveld tried to import Mondrian's abstract art into design production. The result is an extreme semplifications of the lines and the structure of the design product.

Generally regarded as the first really modernist chair. Its simple geometric shapes and the omission of any upholstery broke up with the traditional rules of furniture design. Hence it is much more comfortable than it looks. info source: www.steelform.com

"The chair was specifically built to show that it is possible to create something beautiful, a spatial creation, with simple machine- processed parts. I cut a board of wood into planks and squares. I then sawed the middle part into two for the seat and the backrest, and I made the frame part out of the different lengths of plank. But as I was working on the chair, it never crossed my mind that one day it would become so significant that it would even influence architecture."
