Red and Blue Chair

Continuing on with Gerrit Rietveld, in addition to building buildings he also designed furniture, and his Red and Blue Chair was designed in 1917 using the principles of the De Stijl art school. The chair is part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, but is currently on display in New Zealand. Due to it's flat surfaces and primary color scheme, the chair has been recreated in LEGO forum several times, including those below (probably lots of others that I've missed as well).
