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 of its members was Piet Mondrian. The member of the group responsible for furniture design was Gerrit Thomas Rietveld. His ideas are embodied in the Red/Blue Chair. Designer, Victor Cook, studied art 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 his original extensions of de Stijl, hand-crafted in solid hardwoods. Each frame is numbered, dated and signed.
