Mart Stam (1899-1986)
tubular cantilevered chairs Mart Stam (1899 - 1986)
In 2005 I bought two chairs from my friend Wim
Smits, a colleague of mine.
The chairs used to be owned by Jan Begeer, who was his coleague at
the St Joost Academy of art in Breda, Netherlands. Jan got them from
his father Piet Begeer, who acquired the chairs around 1925. When
Wim got them from Jan, the armrests were upholstered; but he thinks
that may have been done by Piet.
I would like to know more about these two chairs, because they seem to be the only two made - which is rather improbable if you ask me..
