Calculate shipping cost
A pair of stools designed by Dom Hans van der Laan in the Netherlands in the 1970s. The eye-catching, minimalist design makes these pieces some of the most beautiful examples of mid-century Dutch design. The stools are made of wood, crafted in a most recognizable “Bossche School” style. This quality set is a real find of (Dutch) design history! The wooden panels are connected by round nails, adding nicely to the appeal of the pieces. A wonderful set that will make a truly valuable addition to the decor, definitely drawing the attention of any design enthusiast. The set remains in good original condition, with minor wear consistent with age and use, preserving a beautiful patina. Dom Hans van der Laan, originator, architect, designer. Benedictine monk and architect Hans van der Laan (1904-1991) may have had a small body of work, but his legacy is highly regarded in the world of architecture. Although he designed three monasteries and a private dwelling, it was not until he reached the age of 53 that he completed his first real design, the St Benedictusberg Abbey in Vaals of which this bench is from. The building was immediately acclaimed as his masterpiece. The greatest part of Van der Laan’s life, however, was dedicated to conceptualizing form, proportion and the way in which human beings perceive architectural spaces. He also developed the theory of plastic numbers.
