Oswald Vermaercke (attrib.) Desk

Oswald Vermaercke (attrib.) Belgium (1926-/)

A large double sided desk. One side of the desk has a sliding door below a low standing shelf and the other side of the desk has five pull out drawers.

This desk has been attributed to the Belgian designer Oswald Vermaercke in that it has clear similarities to Vermaercke’s ‘Oslo’ desk for V-Form from the same period. It is possibly a variation on the design or is an earlier prototype?

Aldo van Eyck (Netherlands, 1918-1999)

1/2 Wall mounted modernist benches.

Rexine over wooden structure with painted steel supports.

This is 1 of 2 Dutch commissioned 1950s wall mounted benches designed by architect Aldo Van Eyck. Some provenance available. The bench is thought to have been designed and made as a private commission in the 1950s for a doctors waiting room..

Aldo van Eyck was an award winning architect from the Netherlands and a member of CIAM. He was one of the most influential protagonists of the Structuralist architectural movement. Van Eyck lectured throughout Europe and northern America propounding the need to reject Functionalism and attacking the lack of originality in most post-war Modernism. Van Eyck’s position as co-editor of the Dutch magazine Forum helped publicise the “Team 10” call for a return to humanism within architectural design.
