Het Nieuwe Instituut: Richard Hutten in Huis Sonneveld
The Sonneveld House, built in 1933 in Rotterdam, is one of the best-preserved houses of the Nieuwe Bouwen style. The renowned Rotterdam designer Richard Hutten was invited by Het Nieuwe Instituut to respond to the design of this house museum.
This confrontation with current design practice positions Sonneveld House within the contemporary design scene. Hutten’s interventions form part of the revitalisation of the Sonneveld House, in which personal objects and design from the 1930s added to the house lend it more atmosphere and character.hetnieuweinstituut.nl
