Prototype chair. 1983

Tjalling Idenburg (Dutch 1947-2007)

Dutch designer and sculptor Tjalling Idenburg (1947-2007) taught at the TU in Delft in the Industrial Design department, as coordinator of “Products and Prototyping” in the master’s programmes. It was in this area that he was active as a furniture designer and sculptor in the fields of minimal art and spatial design.
This chair labelled with the designers name and the date 1983 is believed to be from a very limited production/ or possibly a prototype for UMS Pastoe. Condition A/F. ~ It would benefit from some care and attention.

Marcel Breuer (Hungary/usa 1902-1981)

First edition model b34 cantilever chair from the 1920s/30s for Thonet.

These early versions had the curved under-seat to the frame.

The thick velvet type fabric to the seat and back have been on the chair for many years. They may be original to the chair as we have found Breuer chairs in the Bauhaus archives with the same type of fabric.

Bram van den Berg (Nl)

Stained pine wood chair.

A rare chair made after a commission from Bas van Pelt / The Hague. Circa 1953 for the youth hostel at Ockenberg-Kijckduin in The Netherlands.

This chair’s rudimentary but simple form and functional design typifies the spirit of the utilitarian design movement that surrounded the WWII period in Europe.

This chair was part of a collection of furniture that we have acquired that was made for Sint Willibrordus church in Almelo, Netherlands in the 1960s (with full provenance). The church was one of the best examples of modernist churches of the era. Unfortunately it was knocked down in 2005.
