Wim Rietveld Bookcase or Room Divider for De Bijenkorf, 1960

$2,780.45per item

About

Very impressive bookcase or room divider designed by Industrial designer Wim Rietveld, son of Gerrit Rietveld. The origin of this bookcase was a big question, but it was made for exclusive department store De Bijenkorf in 1960. De Bijenkorf sold a lot of top designs by Friso Kramer, Wim Rietveld, Gerrit Rietveld, Gio Ponti etc. They worked with great designers in those days and the still do now! This bookcase was designed after the wooden bookcase designed by Gerrit Rietveld in the 1930s. This bookcase stands on its own, its double sided so you can also use this as a room divider. The bookcase is in original black and white color which is very nice in contrast. The bookcase has some very minimal paint loss/rust, but it is one of the best I’ve seen and fits the industrial profile. A very nice and exceptional piece of industrial Design, a true must have for any lover / collector. Would adapt any modernist interior because of the neutral colors.
