Gerrit T. Rietveld
Gerrit Thomas Rietveld (1888-1964) was a Dutch designer, architect and craftsman. Considered one of the great masters of the last century, he established himself among the main exponents of the neoplastic artistic movement. Two personalities emerge from his works, that of the craftsman cabinetmaker who reinvents chairs and furniture according to his code and that of the architect with elegant formulas. Great works such as the Red and Blue, the Utrecht armchair and sofa made for Cassina, are the expression of a design that has eternal life.
