Hendrik Wouda for Pander Art Deco Bookshelf in Oak

About the Item

Hendrik Wouda for Pander & Zonen, bookshelf, oak, macassar ebony, brass, The Netherlands, circa 1925 This utterly well-balanced bookshelf is characterized by a rectangular shape, featuring strong vertical and horizontal lines and provides plenty of storage space. The design is executed in solid oak consisting of a striking pattern of wooden grains and age-appropriate patina. The front showcases an open and clean layout with attentively designed shelves, allowing the user to display objects such as books and glassware to one’s taste. A drawer embodies cubic shaped handles made of macassar ebony, which is characteristic for Dutch Art Deco and that add to the essence of the design. This layout refers to the typical traits of the Art Deco Movement and contributes to its sophisticated appearance. With its three-dimensional feel, the bookshelf lays full focus on the front. 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 famous 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 characterized by sober and sleek designs.
