One hundred years of the art movement De Stijl: The Hague becomes a huge painting signed by Mondrian

Netherlands celebrates one hundred years of the art movement De Stijl by painting the facades of the most emblematic buildings in the city of The Hague, like the famous City Hal.

Mondrian keeps inspiring art, fashion, design and advertising worlds.

Pieter Cornelis Mondriaan, better known as Piet Mondrian, had a complex style, which contradicts its manifest simplicity. After having inspired our light objects (discover them), this style now colours the facades of buildings, windows and streets in the city of The Hague.

The art installation chosen for the one hundred years of the art movement De Stijl brought in the city the well-known vivid shapes thought by the great Dutch painter so as the city has become the biggest painting Mondrian ever created.

As stated by Wired, for The Hague this project is a city-dressing, which re-coloured its buildings, its streets and its quays. Working for Foris, we feel right at home in The Hague.

The urban landscape is embellished with red windows, yellow balconies, blue rafts floating on the waters of the Hofvijver, the pond in the heart of the city.

Here you can enjoy some pictures of The Hague showing Mondrian touch.
