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.
_A 1960s-70s low table. The table could be said to have a nautical theme running through it with its shaped ship like form and refracted light between the glass and table. It has visual similarities to Isokon furniture and to that of the Irish designer Max Clendinning from the 1960s.
Painted moulded plywood with ocean glass top. 131.5 x 58 x 32cm.
Early desk & stool. This desk and stool were made for a private residence in the Netherlands in the 1971. They were commissioned as part of a complete interior refurbishment by Bossche School architects Louis de Kok/Fons Vermeulen. The olive colour wash applied to the furniture was conceived by the artist Wim van Hooff whose colour schemes were utilised by many Bossche School designs during the mid century period. The desk is particularly rare being that it is one of a limited number of vd Laan’s designs that were applied to domestic rather than ecclesiastical environments. _Full provenance available
