Rare stool designed by Dom Hans van der Laan and executed by Jan de Jong for the Vincentius a Paulokerk Eindhoven, 1964. This stool comes from the church who had several of these stools in the interior of which only a few survived probably. The stool has a very nice dark green lacquer finish and has a nice patina from age and uses. The stool was fully designed by the ‘Plastic number’ which was designed by Dom Hans van der Laan. The church was designed in 1962 and the building started in 1963 and was ready in 1964. The church was put out of order since 1998 and is now used as an office, it is still a city monument.

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.
