Gerrit Thomas Rietveld (1888 – 1964) was a Dutch architect and furniture designer notable for his application of the tenets of the de Stijl movement. He was an apprentice in his father’s cabinetmaking business from 1899 to 1906 and later studied architecture in Utrecht. Rietveld was a quirky furniture designer, famous for his minimalistic design. He was the maker of the famous Rietveld chair, the brain behind the Rietveld Schröder House and the man who provided De Stijl with a world-famous icon.
