    Full Description

    “Truus Schröder. I love you, Rietveld.” In 1924, Truus Schröder asked well-known Utrecht furniture designer Gerrit Rietveld to design a new house for her. Never before Rietveld had been asked to design an entire house. Truus Schröder knew exactly what she wanted: simplicity and a space that freed rather than constrained her. It was a match made in heaven. This book highlights the dynamic partnership between Rietveld and Schröder, portraying them as an architect-duo. Schröder’s significant contributions to the design process are illuminated, emphasising her indispensable role in shaping their collaborative vision. It draws its essence from newly unpublished correspondences between Gerrit Rietveld and Truus Schröder, shedding fresh light on her life and legacy.
