The “UNIVERSO RETVELD” exhibition, co-produced by the Nederlands Architectuur Instituut of Rotterdam and the Centraal Museum of Utrecht, and edited by Maristella Casciato, Domitilla Dardi and Ida van Zijl, analyzed the work of Gerrit Thomas Rietveld (1888-1964) in the context of his historical period, his colleagues and contemporaries, the places and the artistic environment in which he lived. The show developed chronologically and was subdivided into four sections and five in-depth studies. The four sections were arranged as if on a single platform divided by luminous strips. The five in-depth studies, however, were separate islands around which the visitor could move in order to better observe the works in progress (the focus on the Schroeder house was particularly interesting). The show was preceded by seven monitor settings, with “zig zag” chairs (produced by Cassina), so as to listen to interviews with historians and contemporary designers (including Gae Aulenti, Andrea Branzi, Enzo Mari, Adachiara Zevi, Tonino Paris, Sami Rintala).
