Rietveld (Dutch, 1888-1964), an accomplished architect and designer was a founder of the De Stijl movement and heavily involved with the Bauhaus school. This example of his "Red-Blue Chair" is his most iconic design, which Reitveld hoped would become mass produced, and sparked the modern movement as we know it today.

The consignor, James McGlothlin (contemporary American architect), has carefully hand built some of Rietveld's most iconic designs.

Good condition; some linear scrapes to seat, but are under the paint.
