Charles Rennie Mackintosh - The Hill House

Gerrit Rietveld (1888-1964) was down to earth and pragmatist like no designer before him. He disregarded ornamentation and prefered cheap materials. His famous red-bleu easy chair of 1919 became admired by Theo van Doesburg of De Stijl movement. Rietveld became a member of De Stijl, which desolved in the thirties. This simple design dates from the mid-fifties and is called 'military' chair because it was meant for the canteen of the Military School in Utrecht.
