RietredblutableBest known for this Red and Blue Chair, Gerrit Rietveld was a member of “De Stijl” movement, whose principles included using straight horizontal and vertical lines, primary colours and avoiding symmetry.

In 1924, Rietveld undertook his most ambitious project, designing the Schröder House in Utrecht, and the Schröder Table was a piece designed to furnish this building. Like the house, the table is made up of geometric asymmetrical forms, and uses the bright colours favoured by other “De Stijl” members such as the artist Mondrian.

Classic Furniture Direct are selling reproductions of the SchröderTable for £335
