DESCRIPTIONAmsterdam School chair by 't Woonhuys. 't Woonhuys Amsterdam; famous for the Michel De Klerk furniture. Provenance: Private collection, The Netherlands, the 1920s. The Amsterdam School (Dutch: Amsterdamse School) is a style of architecture that arose from 1910 through about 1930 in the Netherlands. The Amsterdam School movement is part of the international Expressionist architecture, sometimes linked to German Brick Expressionism. Imbued with socialist ideals, the Amsterdam School style was often applied to working-class housing estates, local institutions, and schools. For many Dutch towns, Hendrik Berlage designed the new urban schemes, while the architects of the Amsterdam School were responsible for the buildings. With regard to the architectural style, Michel de Klerk had a different vision than Berlage. In the magazine "Bouwkundig Weekblad 45/1916" Michel de Klerk criticized Berlage's recent buildings in the style of Dutch Traditionalism. In this context, the Stock Exchange by Berlage of 1905 can be seen as the starting point of Traditionalist architecture. From 1920-1930 different parallel movements developed in the Netherlands.
