Where form meets function

The Centraal Museum in Utrecht is celebrating the legacy of Gerritt Thomas Rietveld through a series of events staggered over the remainder of 2010. The events are separated by region, meaning they take individual stock of Rietveld’s influence in a given area via smaller installations. For example, beginning in October, Rietveld’s furniture will be given a comprehensive exhibition. Additionally, Canadian designer Maarten Meerman’s 1:144 scale model of the Red and White chair (and other miniatures) will be on display.
