Olive Green Table Desk by Dom Hans van der Laan & Jan de Jong - 1970's


Dom Hans van der Laan, Jan de Jong, Bossche school, table or writing desk, Netherlands 1970s. Rare and unique small writing table designed by Dom Hans van der Laan and executed by Jan de Jong for a private residence, 1962-1966. This table comes from the town hall where Jan de Jong was the architect, this town hall was fully decorated with furniture from the Bossche School, also this table was a part of the interior. The table has a very nice dark brown/black lacquer finish which is difficult to define and has a very nice patina from age and usage. The table is finished with copper nails and has a green painted solid metal frame. The table was fully designed by the proportions of the ‘Plastic number’ which was designed by Dom Hans van der Laan. During the reconstruction period after WWII, the Dutch architect Jan de Jong and Dom Hans van der Laan collaborated on several architectural projects including interior furniture. They created an outstanding body of work defining the style of the Bossche School. Jan de Jong was able to translate many of Dom v.d.Laan’s idealized 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 color schemes for their projects.
