The “Architectural Design” students in my class – high school – have been studying the start of modern architecture. The De Stijl movement – 1917 – was the beginning. This period used primary colors and flat panels and straight lines as the foundation. The Schroder House – 1924 – was the first true design of modern architecture – see the model of the house on top of the display. Many architects design furniture as they did during this period. I had my students design a small piece of furniture that followed the period. They were given a limit is size and material; 24” x 24” x 30” and only 4’ x 4’ x 3/4” plywood for the material.
Remember, these are architecture students, not cabinet makers.

I’d like a closer look at the circular table, back centre, if this is possible. The one with the grey quartered pattern top. Could we get another pic or two perhaps?

I agree – I’d love to see more of that round table!

I think they did great. You can see the meaning of this style just sing with them… this movement is the beginning of my favourite in design. I think it’s under-appreciated.
