Pair of Work Stools by Cor Alons

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Cor Alons (Dutch, 1892-1967) was a versatile designer / artist / professor who worked in every medium imaginable. This pair of stools was made in the Netherlands by Oostwoud, the company for whom Alons contributed his most innovative and well-known designs. They are the epitome of functionalist design, with their beautifully curved and sturdy legs, and the plywood seat adjustable for height (ranging from 18 to 26 inches). In good condition despite their many years in a University in Holland, the stools retain their original "Oostwoud" labels.
