Sneak Peek: Metallic Furniture at Amsterdam's Stedelijk Museum

Even if you're not hopping on a plane anytime soon, it's still possible to take a peek at fantastic museum exhibits in distant countries remotely online. Today, I have some photos to share with you from Amsterdam’s Stedelijk Museum. The museum's new exhibition showcases the breadth of the museum’s collections, which include over 90,000 works of painting, sculpture, photography, film, video, works on paper, artist's books, applied arts, and industrial and graphic design.

The museum has also dedicated one room to the design of metal furniture, both modern classics and contemporary pieces by, among others, Ron Arad, Xavier Lust, and Gerrit Rietveld. The aluminum armchair seen here, from Rietveld, is from the museum's permanent collection. Even though it was built in the early 1940s, it looks absolutely contemporary. (By the way, does this chair remind you of Restoration Hardware's WWII-inspired aviation furniture, such as the Spitfire Chair?)
