After the cool and abstract modernism of the 1920s,
some modern designers and architects in the thirties designed unica and limited series again.
These unique pieces or small series for a wealthy clientele were often executed in luxurious materials with an exclusive look.
This armchair designed by Sybold van Ravesteyn for insurance company ‘ Tiel-Utrecht ‘ and the Royal Yacht ‘ Piet Hein ‘ for the Dutch Queen Juliana, is a fine example of this development.
