Gerrit Rietveld Designed Filing Cabinet for Dr. Hartog

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Extremely unique piece! This medical filing cabinet was designed by "De Stijl" founder Gerrit Rietveld for the office of Dr Hartog of Maarssen, Holland in 1922 (see photo).
It has an attractive grey painted wood frame with white storage boxes and Bauhaus yellow hand pulls and possesses the same, almost transparent qualities his famous chairs have. By using the slender pieces of wood, Rietveld managed to give this cabinet an airy appearance. This Piece is not authenticated but as far as we know the only one in existence.
Measurements:
Total 23.625 x 27.5 x 56.125/57.625
Drawers 18.25 x 22.5 x 2.75/4.
