The purist design of the interiors and furniture fits in seamlessly with the functionalist design of the late 1930s, when avant-garde designers made both chromed tube furniture and curved plywood. Group & also designed a dining room chair for the magazine 'Goed Wonen'. Den Boon was the editorial secretary of this magazine from 1948-1950. cused mainly on purist, functional architecture. He focuses mainly on the power of the space itself and often uses a few large objects with which he fills the space, are not exchangeable often uses everyday objects to base his designs such as trestles and milk bottles. Den Boon has written a number of articles for Goed Wonen, which was the most prominent magazine for interior design in the 1940s and 1950s.
