About this creation
The Red Blue Chair is an icon of the de Stijl art and architecture movement of the early Twentieth Century. The wooden chair was designed by Gerrit Rietveld in 1918. Because he hoped that his furniture would be mass produced, Rietveld constructed the chair from standard lumber. Rietveld originally painted the chair black, grey and white, but about 1923 changed it to primary colors after being influenced by the paintings of Piet Mondrian.
My model is based closely off a lovely one created by Matija Grguric; however, I made several modifications. Instead of headlight bricks, I opted to use Technic bricks and pins at the joints. I also used 1x1x5 bricks where practical. Both of these improvements resulted in a sturdier frame. Nevertheless, it is a quite fragile MOC.
