After the Rietveld-Schröder-House Rietveld designed a row of 4 mansions on the Erasmuslaan in Utrecht in 1931. This block is on the far side of the ring road. The contrast is enormous: with their large quantities of glass, white stucco and steel shutters, these houses complied totally with the aesthetic ideal of the Nieuwe Bouwen movement, the Dutch functionalist architecture of the 1930s. The brilliant colours of the Stijl period have vanished completely. Number 9 was designed in October 1931 by Gerrit Rietveld and Truus Schröder as a model home. On this occasion Rietveld presented a number of furniture designs from previous years. He hoped that, given sufficient interest, the firm of Metz & Co would produce these pieces of furniture in series. This however only occurred with the tube-framed chairs. Erasmuslaan 9 was purchased in 1999 and restored by the Hendrick de Keyser Society. The Centraal Museum has reconstructed the original model interior and opened the premises to the public.
