Drie x Rietveld
Nationale Art Deco & Design beurs

14 may - 17 may 2015
will present original furniture by Gerrit Rietveld and sons Wim and Gerrit Jr. This rare selection, of which a part was previously exhibited at Studio Job Gallery in Antwerp, is coming to de Grote Kerk in The Hague soon.
In the design of Zigzag-Pyramid-Bench is a recognizable 'Rietveld' genealogy; even though they differ in materials and production techniques. Together, the three designs give a fantastic perspective of Dutch design: from the honest approach of De Stijl in the 30s till the clear optimism of the New Objectivity in the sixties.
MidMod-Design managed to acquire authentic objects from two generations Rietveld: including Zigzag chairs, Utrecht armchair by Gerrit Rietveld. The famous Pyramid chair, a 416 Polyester armchair and a 6320 floor lamp by Wim Rietveld. And the sofa and sofa bed by Gerrit Rietveld Jr. Original work by Gerrit Thomas Rietveld is rarely offered for sale. Furniture by Gerrit Rietveld jr. is hardly in circulation. This MidMod collection is not only rare in its consistency, but it makes, also because of the special quality of the individual designs, a visit to NAD & D more than worth it.
