Mondrian & De Stijl
De Stijl started in Leiden in 1917 when De Stijl magazine was established by Theo van Doesburg. De Stijl artists search for a completely ‘new art’ that is also expected to renew all of society. Piet Mondrian is a role model for all De Stijl artists. Even today, the principles of De Stijl continue to inspire many Dutch designers like Hella Jongerius, Maarten Baas, Joris Laarman, and Piet Hein Eek.
