The Amsterdam school was an important expressionist influenced architecture movement in Amsterdam that was active in the years from c1910-40. Drawing on the arts and crafts tradition its architects produces public, private and ecclesiastical buildings in brick. Spanning the periods associated  with Art Nouveau and Art Deco it took influence from both but produced a distinctive style in its own right.  Designers also produced items for the home including lights, windows, furniture, and interior design objects often in metal or wood. The somewhat organic style to many objects produces a contrast with other modernist design schools such as the consructivism of de Stijl and the functionalism of Bauhaus which were contemporaries in this era.
