Chair by Piet Klaarhamer

Piet Klaarhamer was a Dutch architect and designer who was a disciple of Hendrik Petrus Berlage. Gerrit Rietveld on his turn was a discipel of Piet Klaarhamer.

This chair was designed for a boy’s room in villa Arendshoeve in Voorburg, a suburb of The Hague. De Arendshoeve belonged to the Bruynzeel family that operated various wood factories in The Netherlands and beyond. The color scheme was designed by a member of “De Stijl”, Vilmos Huszár.

The Central Museum of Utrecht will devote an exhibition to the relation between Gerrit Rietveld and Piet Klaarhamer from December 20, 2014 – March 22,2015.
