Bas van Pelt (Netherlands, 1900-1945)

EMS, My Home. 1930s

Bas Van Pelt design modernist chair – The chair has been confirmed by the Bas van Pelt archives as being as a possible prototype and if not, a very rare design. Bas van Pelt often designed experimental furniture to place in the shop window and would only have the designs produced when the appropriate number of orders were received.

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.

Marcel Breuer (Hungary/usa 1902-1981)

First edition model b34 cantilever chair from the 1920s/30s for Thonet.

These early versions had the curved under-seat to the frame.

The thick velvet type fabric to the seat and back have been on the chair for many years. They may be original to the chair as we have found Breuer chairs in the Bauhaus archives with the same type of fabric.
