Hans Ell for 'T Spectrum Grey Living Room Set
Hans Ell for 't Spectrum, settee BZ18 en SZ18 and lounge chair, The Netherlands, 1970s.
This sofa and matching lounge chair were designed by Hans Ell for 't Spectrum. This design has only been in production for one year, hence the rarity of this design nowadays. The pieces are executed with a tubular chromed steel frame and a grey cushions that fall in the frame. The pieces therefore have a strong shell-like aesthetics. Very Dutch on the one hand due to the minimalistic, functional tendencies whilst on the other hand they fit within a wider range of midcentury modernism due to the soft, organic shapes.
