Alvar Aalto (Finland 1898-1976)

Rare x3 Model 60 stacking stools. 1930s. Finmar production.

Finmar labels to the underside on two of the stools (the other shows evidence of where the label once was).

Each has a great colour and patina. The Finmar labels are recognised evidence of them being early edition genuine 1930s stools.

Wim den Boon (Dutch 1912-1968)

The Dutch designer Wim den Boon designed this pair of chairs in 1954 as a commission for a home in Reeuwijk, in South Holland [purchased directly from the family]. __These are the two remaining chairs of the actual four pictured in Peter Vöge’s book on Wim den Boon [Vöge,1989;p.22]. Although the design never went into production, the chairs exemplify the lasting influence of Gerrit Rietveld and early modernism during the reconstruction period after WWII when Dutch designers continued to experiment and employ a strict/pared-down use of materials and techniques for the cost effective mass-production of furniture.

Oak, sprung seats with vinyl upholstery.

Alvar Aalto (Finland 1898-1976)

Early edition Finmar / Bowman Bros. dining set. Five model 611 stacking chairs and table. This was Aalto’s first modernist chair produced.

This set came from the home (wife) of Russian /American composer Dimitri Tiomkin best known for his western scores, including Duel in the Sun, Red River, High Noon, The Big Sky, Gunfight at the O.K. Corral, and Last Train from Gun Hill.

The set was once black but has been restored and taken back to the wood colour.
