De Stijl, which began as an art publication a century ago, ended up being the most influential design movement in Dutch history. Among the nationwide centennial celebrations, “Architecture and Interiors. The Desire for Style,” at the Municipal Museum of the Hague on June 10 to September 17, presents furniture, architectural models, and drawings. An orange, green, and black blueprint for a 1918 house and an equally colorful 1924 competition entry for a shopping arcade are both by Theo van Doesburg, who co-founded De Stijl with Piet Mondrian.
