DMFCO proud sponsor of Rietveld Schröderhuis
DMFCO proudly supports the Rietveld Schröderhuis, one of the most important architectural achievements of the 20th century. In 1924, Dutch architect Gerrit Rietveld designed a house according to the wishes of recently widowed Truus Schröder, who wanted a dwelling that freed her instead of constrained her. This resulted in an innovative house that broke with all conventions; its influence is still felt by architects today.
UNESCO World Heritage
The Rietveld Schröderhuis is a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2000 due to its radical approach to design and the use of space. An icon of modernism in architecture, the house is the embodiment of De Stijl, a Dutch artistic that also included Piet Mondrian. Characteristic features of the house include the fluid transitions between interior and exterior, the clean horizontal and vertical lines and the use of all primary colours, alongside white, grey and black.
