Rare small side chair designed by Jaap Penraat for N.V. Pentagonia, Holland 1960. This chair is part of a small number of designs he did for this small company ca 1960. There was a sideboard, writing desk, coffee table, chair and bookcase. Very nice solid beech wooden chair with cane woven seat and back, very nicely done and detailed. The chair has a very nice patina from 50 years of sitting on it, original and perfect condition. Very rare piece of Dutch modernism, never seen before, only in the catalogues.
