Gerrit Th. Rietveld, 1888-1964 : the complete works : Centraal Museum, Utrecht, 1992 by Gerrit Thomas Rietveld( Book )

26 editions published in 1992 in English and Dutch and held by 531 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As architect and designer, Gerrit Rietveld (Utrecht, 1888-1964) is one of the great international figures of this century. His work was basically user-friendly and he always tried to see architecture as something for people. Reacting against the conventions with which he had grown up, the driving force behind Rietveld's development became a quest for the essentials of architecture and design. This led in 1918 to the now over-familiar Red Blue Chair and six years after that to the internationally acclaimed Rietveld Schroeder House. This house, built in 1924, signified both an end and a beginning in Rietveld's career. Whereas in the preceding years he had progressed from cabinet-maker to architect and designer of a complete living environment, he was now to concentrate largely on architecture. More and more, he voiced his support for a functional architecture, in which he introduced new constructional methods and where the significance of form and colour was lessened. After the Second World War he contributed to the Dutch reconstruction. Neighbourhoods in Utrecht and Reeuwijk were built according to his design. Within the straitjacket of regulations, building stipulations and budgetary restrictions, Rietveld contrived to introduce in a highly original but flexible manner the functional and aesthetic principles that he had defined before the war. Always experimenting to find the right form, always faithful to his principles, his work was nevertheless of a huge diversity. This variety is what makes Rietveld what he is

"From his first great design masterpiece, the Red-Blue Chair, to his final design for the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, Gerrit Rietveld created a significant body of work and left a remarkable legacy. His simple yet dynamic design style has greatly affected international furniture design and has made a significant contribution to the history of architecture. His unconventional approach and extraordinary furniture, hailed by Theo van Doesburg as 'the new sculpture', inspired many of his contemporaries just as it continues to inspire today's designers; he has he has been cited as a source of inspiration by designers ranging from Verner Panton to Konstantin Grcic. This detailed yet accessible monograph is structured chronologically and richly illustrated with photographs and sketches of Reitveld's furniture design and his twenty-odd architectural projects. Following Rietveld from his humble beginnings as a cabinet-maker to his final years as a world-renowned architect, this book will present both his lesser-known work and his most celebrated, such as "The Zigzag Chair" of 1934. One chapter focuses exclusively on the Schroder House of 1924, which is among the very few twentieth-century buildings to be accorded UNESCO World Heritage Monument status. Produced in collaboration with the Centraal Museum, which holds the world's largest collection of Rietveld's work, this book includes a number of never-before-published images of Rietveld's work and his life. Author Ida van Zijl, who is the Deputy Director of the Centraal Museum and who has organized a variety of exhibitions that have included Rietveld, gives a thorough, accessible account of Rietveld's life and his work. She also explores his significance in the wider context of avante-garde movements, such as his influence within De Stijl and Functionalism, and well as the lesser-known but equally interesting work he produced with an eye towards mass housing and industrial production. Designed by Wim Crowel, the best-known Dutch graphic designer, the book provides a rich mixture of beautiful images and a fascinating story. Most crucially, this book will give Rietveld the attention he has long deserved as a designer and architect, presenting a comprehensive coverage of his output and a full analysis of his achievements." -- Product Description

Design for the good society( Book )

7 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is the culmination of ten years of critical reflection on engaged design and the relation between design and society. The publication marks the conclusion of five editions of the Utrecht Manifest, the biennial event dedicated to the social aspects of design, which was launched in 2005. It also outlines an agenda for the future on the basis of those biennials. One of the éminences grises when it comes to thinking about social design, Victor Margolin, investigates how design is linked with power, economic development and social debate. In interviews with the architect duo Brillembourg/Klumpner, design activist Alastair Fuad-Luke and philosopher of technology Pieter Paul Verbeek, the theory of social design is held up against the often intractable practice

The world = our toolkit : Tejo Rémy & René Veenhuizen by Tejo Remy( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Remy & Veenhuizen nemen de vrijheid om alles wat ze tegenkomen als werkmateriaal te beschouwen: de gegevens van een ruimte, de beperkingen van een opdracht of het materiaal wat ze tegenkomen. Daar gaan ze mee stoeien. Bij ieder project zoeken ze naar nieuwe aanleidingen en ontwikkelen ze een specifieke manier van denken die vanuit het werken zelf ontstaat. Zo wordt elk project ontworpen vanuit zijn eigen parameters en creëert het zijn eigen beelden. Hun overwegingen in het ontwerpproces zijn grillig en zonder hiërarchie, zonder richtlijnen maar met ruimte voor gekke ideeën en poëzie. Remy & Veenhuizen zijn niet pragmatisch; ze onderzoeken, experimenteren en ontdekken. Niets is vanzelfsprekend en de uitkomst is altijd onbekend. Ze gooien hun principes regelmatig over boord: zou het ook anders kunnen? Toevalligheden kenmerken hun houding ten opzichte van design. Er is geen beste oplossing, het gaat over beschouwende willekeur. Het moment waarop iets gebeurt is belangrijk. Ze willen het betekenis geven als het zich voordoet en op het moment dat het dat het zich voordoet. Ze willen in het hier en nu werken, in hun eigen realiteit. Grillige logica leidt tot gematerialiseerde poëzie
