On 27 March 2017, as part of the celebrations of '100 Years of De Stijl: Mondrian to Dutch Design’, the Dutch postal service is issuing ten De Stijl postage stamps in partnership with Het Nieuwe Instituut and the Gemeentemuseum in The Hague.
The stamps are designed by graphic design studio PutGootink and depict works by De Stijl artists and architects such as Theo van Doesburg, Piet Mondrian, Cornelis van Eesteren and J.J.P. Oud from the collections of the Gemeentemuseum in The Hague and Het Nieuwe Instituut in Rotterdam.

Het Nieuwe Instituut has commissioned a short film about the design of the stamps. Filmmaker Marit Geluk has interviewed René Put and Brigitte Gootink about the conception and design of the stamps. The designers have taken the black and white images published in the magazine De Stijl in 1917 and superimposed a playful layer of coloured planes onto them.
