Red and Blue Chair

Designed By

Gerrit Rietveld, a Dutch furniture designer, and architect designed the Red and Blue Chair in the 1910s. The chair's design is made up of simple horizontal and vertical planes for simple construction. In 1918, The chair was initially constructed with unpainted wood, and it was not until the 1920s where one of his colleagues suggested introducing bright colors. The version that we know today is painted black with accents of primary colors. The chair was placed in a museum, and sitting against a black wall gives off the illusion that it's floating.
