Hein Stolle (Netherlands, 1924-2006)

Original painted plywood wall cabinet. 1950s

In the reconstruction period after the second world war, the Dutch architect and furniture designer Hein Stolle experimented with new materials and techniques for the cost effective mass-production of furniture. As a furniture designer, Stolle was a member of Groep & (which comprised Wim den Boon, Hein Stolle and Pierre Kleykamp, 1946-1950). In the early 1950s Stolle designed furniture for the distinguished department stores de Bijenkorf and Metz & Co, often in cooperation with Martin Visser. And in the 1950s and ‘60s he also designed various pieces of furniture for furniture factory ’t Spectrum.

Unique modernist wall cabinet was made for a 1953 exhibition Ons Huis, ons t’huis, (Our House, us at Home) held at De Bijenkorf warehouse in Amsterdam. The cabinet was exhibited at Wonderwood gallery’s exhibition of Stolle’s work in 2004 shortly before his death.

Dutch modernist work desk

1930s. Designer/ manufacturer unknown.

Unknown designer/maker (still researching this). Possibly H.Pander & Sons ~ Fer Semej, Elmar Berkovich or Paul Bromberg? We are currently researching this desk. Gerrit Rietveld was also reputed to have designed a few private commissions in bright colours although we would not be so bold as to attribute it to him).

It has its original paintwork that has faded in places to a tangerine/ coral colour. It has a grey/green cloth top surface. It shows some signs of age and use as would be expected and would benefit from some care and attention.
