Bram van den Berg (Nl)

Stained pine wood chair.

A rare chair made after a commission from Bas van Pelt / The Hague. Circa 1953 for the youth hostel at Ockenberg-Kijckduin in The Netherlands.

This chair’s rudimentary but simple form and functional design typifies the spirit of the utilitarian design movement that surrounded the WWII period in Europe.

EMS, My Home. 1930s

Bas Van Pelt design modernist chair – The chair has been confirmed by the Bas van Pelt archives as being as a possible prototype and if not, a very rare design. Bas van Pelt often designed experimental furniture to place in the shop window and would only have the designs produced when the appropriate number of orders were received.

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.
