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.
