location Rotterdam
function museum, private house
contributed by Naomi

Leen van der Vlugt, of the firm Brinkman & Van der Vlugt, was commissioned to design the interior of the Sonneveld House. As in the Van Nelle Factory and the Van der Leeuw House, he decided to work with W.H. Gispen, who designed and supplied much of the furniture. Something immediately noticeable on entering is the lively color scheme of the interior. The fabrics for the furniture were selected from the assortment of Metz & Co. They were intense, warm colors: vermilion red, cornflower blue and egg yellow, combined with light and dark gray and brown. The patterns were obtainable in various fabric types for carpeting, upholstery and curtains. The Sonneveld House is a historic example of Nieuwe Bouwen, the Dutch branch of functionalism that emerged early in the 20th century and reached its climax in the years between the two world wars. The designers claimed no monumental aspirations, but based their designs on the intended function of the building and the needs of its users.
