Bas van Pelt (Netherlands, 1931-95)

EMS, My Home. 1930s

Rare early Bas Van Pelt design modernist armchair.

Bas van Pelt began his shop ‘My Home’ in The Hague, Netherlands in 1931 and within a short period the company opened showrooms in other cities such as Maastricht and Amsterdam. The domestic interior design firm focused on producing high-quality modern interior furniture. Eventually right up until into the 1990s Bas van Pelt furniture and fabrics were also sold throughout The Netherlands and beyond by well-known modernist suppliers and manufacturers such as Thonet, D3, LOV and Gispen.

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.

Price: 1400 euro.
