Often referred to as the godfather of Dutch design, multi award winning and flamboyant Dutch architect / Interior Designer Jan des Bouvrie created furniture pieces for Gelderland Netherlands during the 1970s.

The leather is in poor condition but has no tears so can be re-dyed [ we can arrange this ] .The chrome frames are still shiny and bright with only tiny rust spots.

DC Collector: These are from the 301 series designed in 1977 exhibited recently [click here]

Today Gelderland continues to produce its ‘furniture for generations’ including an updated version of the 301, the 601 ‘Mr Oberman’ which retails for 1,910 Euros [AUD$2,940] .
