Early in the last century, the idea of furniture built with solid wood squares joined at right angles was born in the Dutch design group known for its magazine, de Stijl. The most famous artist of the group was Piet Mondrian, but the member responsible for its signature furniture design was Gerrit Thomas Rietveld. His ideas are embodied in the Red/Blue Chair, designed in 1918.
Victor Cook studied at the University of Wyoming under Ilya Bolotowsky, who was deeply influenced by his association with Piet Mondrian in New York City. You see here Mr. Cook's original extensions of de Stijl, hand-crafted in solid hardwoods. Each piece is numbered, dated, signed and installed by the artist himself.
