Set of 3 dining chairs designed by the Dutch Benedictine monk and architect, Dom Hans van der Laan in the 1960s.
Van der laan was a leading figure in the traditionalist movement, the Bossche School, his legacy is highly regarded in the world of architecture.
These particular chairs come from a Bossche School villa in Den Bosch, designed in 1970 by Nico van der Laan, who was the younger brother of Dom Hans van der Laan and an architect as well.
They were handmade in the 1990s by Gorisse carpenters in Oosterhout, who produce already since the 1980s furniture from Dom Hans van der Laan in their atelier. At the end of the 1980s they get official permission from the prior of the monastery to make this furniture.
The chairs are made of solid pine wood and they are lacquered in a greenish grey, in accordance with the pallet of color by the expert Wim van Hooff.
Unique set of chairs and highly sought after nowadays.
The chairs are in good original condition with some traces of use, as visible on the pictures.
