For almost a century people have been fasinated by minimalistic geometric design.
less is more or doing more with less was a concept which started in Holland back in 1917 by a movement called De Stijl or in english The style. The architect Van der Rohe became a leading figure in that movement and we all know him and his work today.
Van der Rohe´s iconic Barcelona chair first apeared in 1929.
Another great architect that shaped future generations awareness upon the Neoplastiscism was Gerrit Rietveld.

Hard to believe that this “Blue and red” chair was designed in 1917 by Gerrit Reitveld.
