A pair of mid-century constructivist-style lounge chairs simply made from boxy hardwood frames and rope seats. While the thick bound cord is reminiscent of the 1952 rope chair by Jørgen Høj and Poul Kjærholm, Denmark, the the boxy profile and stylised dowel joints speak to an earlier Haague School aesthetic, so we believe the piece to be Dutch.
Extra comfort is provided with a seat and back cushion, which is held counterbalanced by a metal rod to the rear.
The chairs bare a unique but unknown maker’s marks on the frame. The joints and details like the weighted cushion rod show a real quality of craftsmanship. The cushions, which provide extra comfort were recently reupholstered in French milled linen and are in excellent condition. The frames and rope are in good condition for their age with minor traces of use and wear.
