One of my favorite design eras was in the time of the Bauhaus school. In 1923, Rietveld was invited to share his exhibit at the school. His design made an impact on the students and the teachers. Many designs from the school were modular, simple and clean cut. Rietveld’s Red and Blue chair exemplified many of the design properties that came from that school. Many designs focused on the simplicity of form and color. Like in Rietveld’s Schroder House, one of the main themes of the school was to create one piece of art. Previously, the architect designed the building, the designer designed the interior and the landscape architect designed the exterior. The Schroder House is an example of how one designer designed all aspects of the building, inside and outside. Het_Rietveld_Schroderhuis_foto_Ernst_Moritz_jpg_630x378_q85_crop-1_upscale-1
