Height: 84 cm
Width: 36 cm
Depth: 45 cm
Hard to find pair of bar stools design by industrial designder Willy van der Meeren, produced by Tubax Belgium 1950. These bar stools are made in very limited production and all were different with vinyl seat. These have black tubular structure frame and a yellow lacquered feet stand. These stools have the nicest vinyl there was. Not the boring neutral vinyl but the typical fifties vinyl which gives an extra finish to these stools. The stools are in a very nice condition, only one stool is missing a small feet end, nothing serious for stools being over 50 years old! These stools are really two sculptures and a diamond to meet the eye. A must have for any modernist fifties design lover or collector. Designed by one of the greatest industrial designers of the 20th century. A 200 square meter exposition was held in the Bruxelles Atomium in 2008. After the expo a lot of people started to chase the designs of this designer.
