Gerard Wijnen (Netherlands, 1930-)

Armchairs, 1960 (Four available – one shown)

Bossche school architect Gerard Wijnen attended classes given by Hans Dom van der Laan in the 1960s. Wijnen was not a prolific designer and his furniture was only made through commission from the architect which accounts for its scarcity.

Wijnen was photographed sitting on one of these chairs as can be seen in the photograph from the ‘s-Hertogenbosch town archives collection.

Bas van Pelt (Netherlands, 1931-95)

EMS, My Home. 1930s

Rare early Bas Van Pelt design double-sided desk with two chairs

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 early Bas van Pelt design desk and two chairs were manufactured in solid oak wood. Each piece has the Maker/designer’s name brandished in the wood.

Alvar Aalto (Finland 1898-1976)

Five model 612 chairs and a drop-leaf dining table. 1940s-50s.

A dining set composed of five model 612 chairs. Solid and laminated birch with vinyl webbed back and padded seat. “Y-legs” of bent massive birch. Designed in 1947. Illustrated in Alvar Aalto, Leonardo Mosso, p.76. Produced by Artek in the early 1950s.  (These were purchased from first owner).

The chairs come with a birch drop end leaf table. The table is a 1940s production with beaded edging (Possibly a Swedish production).

With character! Some general wear and tear (the vinyl, once white has discoloured to a nice even cream colour)  – signs of constant use.
