Dutch Design Focus

This month for our 'Dutch Design Focus' we have brought to you a selection of Dutch modernist furniture from the most renowned Dutch designers and manufacturers. Below is a 70s reproduction of the famous Red/Blue Chair designed by architect Gerrit Thomas Rietveld as part of the 'De Stijl' movement (surprisingly in 1917!). The rigorous use of straight, horizontal and vertical lines, geometry and primary colours served as an inspiration for many mid-century Dutch designers.
