“This book's series of penetrating and accessible essays illuminate Rietveld and delve into his entire career, covering ground before and after De Stijl in great detail. The essays are themed, each by a different author, and include or cover new topic...”
ed the incredible scope and longevity of Rietveld's career, for this consummate modernist polymath designed on every scale, from a bus stop to a small village, and he continued his experiments right up to his death in 1964. Today his works are to be found in the collection of every serious design museum. Rietveld's Universe is a comprehensive publication on the range of this great designer's work, reproducing works and presenting new research and perspectives, including contributions by leading international scholars. Focusing on Rietveld's spatial philosophy and the mutual influences between his work and that of his close contemporaries such as Mondrian, Van Doesburg, Frank Lloyd Wright, Mies van der Rohe, Le Corbusier and Alvar Aalto, it expresses the unity of Rietveld's modernist pedagogy and affirms the audacity of his vision.
