Hein Stolle (Netherlands, 1924-2006)
The Dutch architect Hein Stolle alongside Wim De Boon and Pierre Kleykamp formed the ‘Group&’ in the period shortly after WWII as part of the Dutch ‘Goed Wonen’ (Good living) movement. They focused on designing purist interior furniture and design that echoed the spirit of 1930s functionalist design but made available to a wider audience.The use of softer woods and natural materials was possibly influenced by French designers like Charlotte Perriand.
Extremely rare (1 of only a few made) armchair with adjustable back produced for De Bijenkorf 1948 by the Dutch company ‘t Spectrum.
Pine frame with rattan seat and back.
Alvar Aalto (Finland 1898-1976)
Rare x4 Model 60 stacking stools. 1930s. Finmar.
Finmar labels to the underside on three of the stools (the other shows evidence of where the label once was).
Four great original examples of Aaltos model 60 stools – Each has a great colour and shows patina of wear and tear as would be expected and hoped for. The Finmar labels are recognised evidence of them being early edition genuine 1930s stools.
