About the item

Set of abstract designed Dutch modernist chairs by Wim den Boon Netherlands. This specific model, defined by the technical drawings as model M2-44 C.D., is a rare model by Wim den Boon only produced during 1958.

Wim Den Boon (1912-1968) founded ‘Groep & together with Hein Stolle and Pierre Kleykam’, in 1945. The ambition
of the collective was to design abstract and purist furniture doing the postwar period or ‘reconstruction period’ in The Netherlands. Many of the designs have been featured in the ‘Goed Wonen’ magazine, of which Den Boon was the editorial secretary from 1948-1950.

This armchair (dated 1958) is registered and documented in the New Dutch Institute for Architecture, Design and Digital Technology (NI). So the chair comes with full provenance.

The frame has been built out of black metal and has a relatively strong vertically oriented frame with high positioned armrests. The armrests lay on top of the frame and consists of solid oak. The seat and backrest are slightly tilted to provide for an interesting contrast with the straight lines.

The armchairs have been reupholstered in 2016 by a local atelier in dark purple fabric. A copy of the original invoice is still present.

The armchairs came from a household with a strong affection for Den Boon designs and were part of a larger Den Boon collection of furniture, that were purchased new from Wim den Boon back in the day. Copies of the original pictures are present too.

About the condition 

The armchairs are in good vintage condition with slight traces of use on the wood and frame. The fabric has been reupholstered recently and therefore in good condition.
