Red Blue Chair by Gerrit T. Rietveld | Alivar MVSEVM Article 545

The Red and Blue Chair by Gerrit Rietfield with frame and arms in solid beechwood, painted black and yellow. Seat and back in plywood painted blue and red. The 1918 version of this chair was in natural wood. This version in primary colors appeared in 1923. The original chair was constructed of unstained beech wood and was not painted until the early 1920s. Bart van der Leck, fellow member of De Stijl and architect saw his original model and suggested that he add bright colors. He built the new model of thinner wood and painted it entirely black with areas of primary colors attributed to De Stijl movement. The effect of this color scheme made the chair seem to almost disappear against the black walls and floor of the Schröder house where it was later placed. The areas of color appeared to float, giving it an almost transparent structure.
