> DESCRIPTION

First Ever Rietveld exhibition in a Dutch Gallery

Selection of works from important private collections

In the past a few foreign galleries made exhibitions devoted to the work of Gerrit Th. Rietveld.
Galerie Vivid is very proud to be the first ever Dutch gallery to organize a comprehensive presentation of the Dutch architect's original works.
Many of his iconic designs will be on display. Amongst others his famous ‘Red–Blue’ chair, the 'ZigZag' chair and 'Beugelstoel'. The works come from major Dutch private collections, most have never seen by the public before.

The generation that has known Gerrit Rietveld in person and worked with him is slowly disappearing. This exhibition will tell the story of these people, show their love for the work of Rietveld and let us admire the Rietveld furniture they collected.

One of the highlights of the exhibition will be Rietveld's, monochrome black 'rood-blauwe stoel' designed in 1919, that was commissioned by the famous Dutch designer Kho Liang Ie in 1963.

A small part of the works in the Galerie VIVID exhibition is for sale.
