In the 20th century everything was new, inventions, innovations and charges were introduced at an unprecedented pace. The world had to come to terms with both beneficial and horrific inventions. Life fell under the spell of technology. Innovation was also a leitmotif in art. What had been done before was considered old-fashioned. A new abstract, colourful, and sometimes unsettling pictorial idiom emerged.
Gerrit Rietveld was a Dutch furniture designer and architect. One of the principal members of the Dutch artistic movement called De Stijl. Rietveld was one of the first Dutch designers to use plywood, which made of multiple thin layers of wood veneer bonded together and pressed under great pressure into a particular form.
 Here some pictures of the firsts Gerrit Rietveld's experiments about chairs design from the early 900's.
