Green Fracture Chair by Ineke Hans
This is one of the chairs that was auctioned at Venduehuis The Hague. I didn’t feature it yet. You could say I’m in a clean up mood. The chair didn’t sell…
Dutch designer Dirk van der Kooij is one of those alumni of the Eindhoven Design Academy who come to fame with one of their graduation projects. Dirk experimented with old fridge hulls and a 3D printing machine and created the Endless Chair. Sold already to MoMa, Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam and vitra Design Museum. I should have featured it here already, but I’ve been waiting till I could make my own photo’s. The first photo is the one currently been sold at Piet Hein Eek’s studio. The second photo is a preproduction model which was on sale at the Venduehuis The Hague back in October 2012. There it was not sold.
Part of the chairs auctioned by Venduehuis The Hague was a series of chairs for charity specifically designed by Dutch Chair designers for the auction. The proceedings thereof would be donated to a good cause chosen by the designers themselves. The idea was that an existing chair would be reinterpreted. Maarten Baas choose Amnesty International as good cause and designed this one off clay chair after the example he took from an existing typical Dutch ladder-back chair that the Venduehuis auctions frequently. The Clay Chair was auctioned as lot no 150 for Euro 3,600.-
This blue spiral Tatlin Sofa of 1989 by Mario Cananzi was not sold at the recent 20th Century design auction of Venduehuis The Hague. As lot no 119 it was estimated between Euro 1,500 and 2,000.
