Even in this flattened front-facing perspective, Gerrit Thomas Rietveld's iconic chair is immediately recognizable. Originally designed with standard wood elements painted black, white, and gray, he was eventually swayed by the De Stijl movement's penchant for saturated colors (especially as seen in the paintings of Piet Mondrian); in 1923, Rietveld applied the colors we see depicted here. His conceptual design was one of the first three-dimensional works in this movement. Israeli curator Izika Gaon designed this aptly geometric promotion for an exhibition of De Stijl works at the Israel Museum in 1977. The poster also resides in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art and the Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum in New York City.
