About

Lovely pair of rare early Dutch Modernism moulded plywood easy chairs with armrests

Cor Alons was the first Dutch interior and Industrial designer that started to work with moulded plywood just after WWII 1945-1950 in The Netherlands

His manufacturer Den Boer was based in Gouda, home of the famous Dutch cheese

In 1948 he introduced this model with three legs, after a short production of 2 years they changed the design to four legs

This pair of HF506 chairs would have been produced in the very early 1950s

We have re-upholstered these chairs with a stunning De Ploeg 'Steppe" wool upholstery in a petrol/green color

Armrest height 24.4inch/62cm.
