An exhibition of Rietvelds work that aims to show he designed much more than the classic Red-Blue Chair & the Schroder House. He completed more than 100 building and many pieces of furniture. The exhibition places his work in a broad context by comparing his work and manner of working to contemporaries such as Wright, Les Corbusier and Mies van der Rohe. 20 Oct 2010 - 30 Jan 2011.
