Elmar Berkovich (Netherlands 1897-1968)

A pair of very rare oak armchairs designed by Elmar Berkovich. Originally designed for the workers at the Shell factory although used in various environments thereafter.

They are made from an unidentified wood that is close to oak but has a very light weight to it. They were designed to be clipped together and exported easily for the factories in Dutch East Indies colonies. (Although the frames have now been glued together).

POA.
