Bas van Pelt (1931-95)
Early Bas Van Pelt design modernist armchair. EMS My Home.
This Bas van Pelt design has its original red paintwork over metal frame, sesal (woven grass fibre) slung seat and back. This chair is thought to be a very early edition of the design as it has a solid frame as opposed to a hollow one that all the later ones had. This of course makes it somewhat heavier than the later editions.
Bas van Pelt began his shop ‘My Home’ in The Hague, Netherlands in 1931
