Gerrit Rietveld's Zig Zag Chair, Red and Blue Chair, and other designs have become architectural modern classic design favorites. Gerrit Rietveld was born in the Netherlands in 1888. By the age of 23, Gerrit Rietveld was studying architecture and started a furniture factory. In 1918, he designed the Red and Blue Chair. In 1924 Gerrit Rietveld designed perhaps his most famous architectural works, the Schroeder House. This design, both inside and outside, features asymmetrical geometric forms.

The Schroeder Table is one of the pieces that was designed specifically for this enduring treasure. In 1922-23 Gerrit Rietveld designed the Schroeder Table for the Schroeder House in Utrecht that was constructed in 1924. Taking the name from this housing commission, the Schroeder Table also inherited its cubist style and brilliant color scheme from its predecessor the Red and Blue Chair. Together, these pieces signaled a radical change in architectural theory. His unusual furniture designs led to several housing commissions, which he invariably designed in a Neo-plastic style. Assembled from simple geometric forms, the Gerrit Rietveld Schroeder Table is as asymmetrical as the house itself.

Made In Italy.
