Dom Hans vd Laan desk and stool. 1960s

Dom Hans van der Laan (NL 1904-1991)

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

Prices: Desk: 12,000 euro Stool: 4,600 euro

Paul Wintermans bracket table with floating glass

Paul Wintermans (NL)

‘Beugeltafel’ /Bracket table 1980s.

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.

Price: 1,900.00 euro
