Dom Hans van der Laan

Dom Hans van der Laan (Netherlands 1904-1991)

Painted pine and plywood. 1980s.

Under the supervision of Benedictine monk/ architect Dom Hans vd Laan, a series of furniture was made by the Dutch company Gorisse in the late 1970s- early 1980s for the purposes of exhibition (catalogue images 1&5).
This table and benches (and three stools not shown) were either the pieces shown in the exhibition/catalogue, or they were commissioned from Gorisse at the time.
The pieces differ from the normal plank constructions in that they have completely flat, panelled exteriors which gives them a much simpler, pared down aesthetic.
