Bas van Pelt (Netherlands, 1931-95)

EMS, My Home. 1930s

Rare early Bas Van Pelt design modernist armchair.

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 Bas van Pelt design has its original red paintwork over metal frame, sesal (woven grass fibre) slung seat and back. This chair is thought to be a very early edition of the design as it has a solid frame as opposed to a hollow one that all the later ones had. This of course makes it somewhat heavier than the later editions.

Price: 1400 euro.

Hein Stolle (Netherlands, 1924-2006)

Armchair 1948

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.
