Rare bench designed by Dom Hans van der Laan and executed by Jan de Jong for a private house in Rosmalen, Holland 1973. This stool comes from the first owner of the house who was still living there the present day. The stool has very nice dark green lacquer finished wood with copper nails and has a nice patina from age and usage, has been refinished once in the same colour. The stool was fully designed by the proportions of the  ‘Plastic number’ which was designed by Dom Hans van der Laan. The house was built in 1973 and was still in almost completely original condition. Very nice provenance and

During the reconstruction period after WWII the Dutch architect Jan de Jong and Dom Hans van der Laan collaborated on several architectural projects including the interior furniture. They created an outstanding body of work defining the the style of the Bossche School. Jan de Jong was able to translate many of Dom v.d.Laan’s idealised concepts and ideas into pioneering buildings and spaces. They worked in such close collaboration however that it is difficult to discern the individual level of input into the furniture they designed. The artist Wim van Hoof worked with the two architects proposing different colour schemes for their projects. The original olive green surface visible on these tables derived from one of those schemes.
