Description This rattan and steel basket with a lid is attributed to Dutch designer, Dirk van Sliedregt, and was manufactured by Rohé Noordwolde in the 1960s.

This Rohé basket has a metal structure covered in wicker. The organic material is carefully woven around the steel frame, which is painted black. The combination of metal and organic gives a modern feel to this piece. With functionality at its core, the basket is a decorative piece that can be used in versatile ways. Dutch midcentury rattan pieces like this Rohé piece have a well-established history and have been highly sought after in the past years.

Rohé Noordwolde has been the main manufacturer for Dutch rattan furniture since the early 20th century. The Rohé rattan manufactory was established in the Frisian town of Noordwolde in 1919 and became one of the largest employers in Friesland. The Dutch brand became big due to the immense popularity of rattan after the Second World War. A real product from Dutch soil.

About the designer:
Dirk van Sliedregt (1920–2010) designed many particularly beautiful rattan chairs for Rohé. He combined his work as a furniture designer with that of a teacher at Dutch art schools, including the Academy of Enschede and the Rietveld Academy.

After the Second World War, Dirk van Sliedregt started experimenting with rattan. He created a few furniture designs, many of which were soon picked up by the furniture factory in Noordwolde. First the chairs were made entirely of rattan, and from 1952 usually a combination of rattan with a metal tubular frame. The pieces by Van Sliedregt stand out for their design, visually simple at first glance, but quite intricate on closer inspection. Van Sliedregt's designs are often a combination of rattan with a metal tube frame. He disliked sought-after shapes and what we would now call 'statements', and put emphasis on functionality.

Van Sliedregt was a self-made man, who made it from furniture maker, through furniture designer, interior designer and teacher to academy director. As much as he broadened his theoretical and cultural horizons, the carpenter in him continued to insist on the importance of good craftsmanship and practical experience. H.
