De Stijl is a Dutch word for The Style, this movement was founded by Theo van Doesburg in 1917. There are three artists most recognised for their work, they are Theo van Doesburg, Piet Mindrian and the architect Gerrit Reitveld. The idea behind the movement was an ultimate Utopia of harmony and order. This was created by the geometric forms and primary colours (Design is History, n.d.).
As perviously stated Piet Mindrian was an “important contributor to the De Stijl movement. He evolved a non-representational form which he termed Neo-Plasticism“. This technique consists of a white background, black horizontal and vertical lined with three primary colours (Wiki, 2011).
