Wim Den Boon Dining Table in Mahogany and Black Lacquered Steel

About the Item

Wim den Boon, dining table, mahogany, lacquered steel, The Netherlands, designed in 1955 and manufactured in 1958. Exclusive dining table designed by Wim den Boon for a Dutch family home, and therefore one of a kind. This honest design features a T-shaped black lacquered steel base, which makes a stunning combination with the warm tones of the mahogany table top. The straight lines of the mahogany grain pattern emphasizes the clean and geometric shapes in this design. This table can also be used as a writing desk. Wim Den Boon (1912-1968) was a Dutch designer, interior designer and architect. Den Boon was a dogmatic man who believed strongly in the transforming capacities of architecture and design. Den Boon was affected by the architecture of Le Corbusier, De Stijl and Rietveld. He studied at the Academy for Visual Arts in The Hague in 1941. In 1945, he founded 'Groep & together with Hein Stolle and Pierre Kleykam', a group that manifested itself after the war with interiors and design such as the furniture of the international departure hall of Schiphol in 1948. 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 that put emphasize mainly on purist, functional architecture. He focused on the power of the space itself and often used a few large objects with which he filled the space. Regularly, everyday objects functioned as a base for 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. His articles were almost strictly educational. His writings were meant to liberate and educate people. Den Boon's dogmatic character and the austere tone of his articles resulted in too much controversy which led to Wim Den Boon being forced to resign from the magazine in 1950. The mahogany type of this piece does not require an export license.
