1937 Yacht Chair by Sybold van Ravesteyn

This chair was designed by Dutch Architect Sybold Van Ravesteijn for former Dutch furniture manufacturer Mutters (Its full name was “Koninklijke Nederlandsche Meubelfabriek H.P. Mutters & Zn N.V.”) who was involved in the design of the interior for the Royal Motor Yacht Piet Hein which was donated by the Dutch to their former Queen Juliana at the occasion of her wedding with Prince Bernhard in 1937.

Sometimes I take photos of chairs somewhere just without knowing what the name or provenance of the chair is. That happened with this chair a while ago. Now via Pinterest I came across the blog of Ileen Montijn – Ilog who at about the same time had made a photo of the same chair. It was on exposition here in my home town The Hague in the The Hague Municipal Museum of Modern Art. Her explanation gave me the clue to share it with you. Thank you Ileen!
