About the exhibition

Gerrit Rietveld (1888-1964) became unprecedentedly famous with his radical designs from the 1920’s. His iconic work is still an inspiration for contemporary designers, many of whom took a red-blue chair or sideboard by Rietveld as the starting point for their own, completely new, version.

The Redesign Rietveld exhibition takes you through sixty interpretative odes to the great master. These models were conceived by designers from all over the world and recreated in 1:3 scale by exhibition-makers Harry Hoek and Marjoleine Molenaar.
