Under the supervision of Benedictine monk/ architect Dom Hans vd Laan, a series of furniture was made by the Dutch company Gorisse in the late 1970s- early 1980s for the purposes of exhibition (catalogue images 1&5). This table and benches (and three stools not shown) were either the pieces shown in the exhibition/catalogue, or they were commissioned from Gorisse at the time. The pieces differ from the normal plank constructions in that they have completely flat, panelled exteriors which gives them a much simpler, pared down aesthetic. .

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.
