Hendrik Wouda for H. Pander & Zn, pair of armchairs, oak, yellow fabric, The Netherlands, 1930s

These art deco armchairs were designed by the architect Hendrik Wouda in the 1930s. This rare set of armchairs has a very sleek shape. As the sides of the legs and the frame are closed, the chair gets a sturdy, yet sculptural feel. The chair has recently been reupholstered in a yellow Tonus Kvadrat fabric which beautifully contrasts with the dark oak. Although sober in form, the art deco style of these chairs radiate elegance and taste. A similar model of this chair can be found in the collection of the Centraal Museum in Utrecht.

Hendrik Wouda (1885-1946) was a Dutch designer and architect. After studying at the Academie voor Beeldende en Technische Wetenschappen and the Academie voor Beeldende Kunsten in The Hague, Wouda started working at the office of the esteemed architect H.P. Berlage. During World War I, Wouda began working for the renowned furniture company Pander & Zonen in The Hague. Here, he developed a very statuesque style that was inspired by the American architect Frank Lloyd Wright. This style, also known as the New Hague School, is a movement that emphasized geometric form language, simple proportions and constructivist decorations. De Stijl played a major role in the development of the formal language and use of colors of this movement.
