'Impressive... engaging and highly accessible' - Self Build & Design

Dutch designer and world-renowned architect Gerrit Rietveld's simple yet dynamic style greatly influenced international furniture design and contributed significantly to the history of architecture. Following Rietveld from his humble beginnings as a cabinetmaker to his final years as a world-renowned architect, this book, which draws on the collections of Utrecht's Centraal Museum, presents both his lesser-known work and his most celebrated. It explores his significance in the wider context of avant-garde movements, and his influence within De Stijl and Functionalism.

This highly detailed and accessible monograph is designed by the acclaimed Dutch designer Wim Crouwel.
