The architect Paul Wintermans has been designing furniture primarily for architectural projects since the 1980s. This furniture was produced as unique pieces or as very limited productions. Wintermans furniture designs can be found in the collection of the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam.
This table is an ingenious engineered design, constructed from three separate pieces: A sheet of glass sandblasted except for two clear stripes that act both as a design feature and help position the two steel rod feet with adjustable fixings. The two feet simply lean into the structure which when combined with the weight of the glass enables the structure to clamp into place.
A console table commissioned for the adaptation of a private residence in Rotterdam during the early 1960s. It has a thick gauge steel base with a 4cm solid teak sectioned top. Den Boon was part of ‘group &’ alongside Hein Stolle and Pierre Kleykamp, a group of Dutch interior /furniture designers influenced by the reductivist designs of Gerrit Rietveld. Some provenance available including original drawing designs.
A large Bossche School altar table. Designed by the Dutch Benedictine monk/architect Dom Hans van der Laan. The metal and stone decorative elements across the side were believed to have been designed by the sculptor and silversmith Jan Noyons (1918-1982) who designed and manufactured many alter pieces throughout the Netherlands. The colour palette is believed to have been conceived by Wim van Hooff (1918-2002) who was a painter and colour consultant who developed his own colour theories in addition to making an important contribution to the architecture of the Bossche School.
This rare example of Van der Laan’s designs was part of a collection of furniture came from a post-war church in Amstelveen in The Netherlands.
