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.

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.
