Ate van Apeldoorn lounge chair * 1.800,-

Ate van Apeldoorn lounge chair ‘Stokkenstoel’

This robust and a bit brutalist lounge chair was designed in the 1960s by Dutch cabinetmaker Ate van Apeldoorn. He founded his own production company in 1958 ‘Houtwerk Hattem.’ The listed chair, which he called ‘stokkenstoel’ (stick chair), has an ingenious construction and a high degree of finishing. The production of these designs stopped after a few decades. The listed frames were made by van Hattem in our commission in a limited edition of 10 (year 2020). The chairs have the original measurements, and are made by the same cabinetmaker at van Hattem, that worked with Ate van Apeldoorn during the 1960s.

The frame is executed in solid pine, ash and two saddle leather slings. We have hand picked the high quality saddle leather that our upholster used to create the two slings for seating and back. The leather is treated with a special wax coating for the first spatters and use, as is the wood. Van Apeldoorn’s body of work should be seen in the context of the Dutch functionalisme with Architect Gerrit Rietveld and artists as Piet Mondriaan and Bart van der Leck. ‘Het Nieuwe Bouwen’ in Dutch, a style that was rational and efficient, has been an essential and influential part of all Dutch design that followed, including the collection of van Apeldoorn.

DUTCH / NEDERLANDS: Deze functionele, maar zeer comfortabele ‘Stokkenstoel’ is ontworpen door meubelmaker Ate van Apeldoorn (1933-2020) in de jaren ’60. Van Apeldoorn richtte in 1958 zijn eigen productiebedrijf op genaamd ‘Houtwerk Hattem’. De productie van deze fauteuils stopte na enkele decennia. In een kleine oplage (10ex.) heeft Houtwerk Hattem op ons verzoek, de frames opnieuw gemaakt. Uitgevoerd door dezelfde meubelmaker waar Van Apeldoorn destijds de meubelen mee maakte. De frames  zijn uitgevoerd in de originele maten en materialen: grenen armleggers en essen stokken. Wij hebben het zadelleer zelf uitgezocht op kwaliteit en dikte, welke door onze stoffeerder, obv de originele mal, is verwerkt. Bijzonder design, hoogwaardig afgewerkt.
