Laurens Groen (Netherlands, 1803-1962)
H.H.de Klerk & Sons, 1920s.
Oak frame & corduroy fabric upholstery
This rare oak chair was designed by Laurens Groen and manufactured by H.H. de Klerk & Zoonen in 1924. It is a typical example of the Amsterdam School international expressionist architecture and design movement. The expressionist style was based on abstraction; geometry, growth and germination of forms and spaces. The clear influence of Frank-Lloyd Wright during the period when Dutch design was making its transition to modernity can be seen.
There is a comparable model in the ‘Centraal Museum’ in Utrecht, the Netherlands.
