Important Dutch Modernist Lawo Lounge Chair by Han Pieck for Lawo Ommen, 1946

About

Important Dutch modernist chair, the LaWo1 chair designed by Han Pieck for Lawo Ommen, The Netherlands 1946. The LaWo1 chair is brilliantly designed and made from several layers of birch plywood. The rear legs are fixed to the seat back by brass brackets. Han Pieck developed the chair during WWII during his study in Amsterdam. His teacher Mart Stam, was a former Bauhaus teacher. After the war, Han Pieck intended to produce 2000 Lawo chairs in the factory in Ommen that he had established for this purpose, with ao financial support from the Marshall Fund. Postwar conditions and shortages of materials meant that only ca 1200 examples were produced before the operation went bankrupt, forcing Pieck to sell his proprietary manufacturing process to Morris & Co. a company from Glasgow UK, which then produced Pieck's second design, the Bambi dining chair. As a result of the limited production, Lawo chairs are today quite rare. The number of remaining chairs is estimated at only fifty chairs. The Lawo is regarded as one of the most important Dutch modernist chair designs. This example is in very good, fully original condition and has a gorgeous patina. The chair has tremendous character, with a tangible sense of history. There is no production number on the chair, which might imply an early production. The back of the chair is slightly bent.

Stoelen by Delft University Press, Delft 1980, page 104.
