Four Storage Baskets by Dirk van Sliedregt (attr.) for Rohé, Netherlands 1960s

$ 2,423
  • Description
    These rattan and steel baskets are attributed to Dutch designer, Dirk van Sliedregt, and were manufactured by Rohé Noordwolde in the 1960s.

    Each Rohé basket has a metal structure covered in wicker. The organic material is carefully woven around the steel frame, which is painted black, creating a sleek, interesting effect. The combination of metal and wicker gives a modern look to these baskets. With functionality at the design’s core, this model is a decorative piece that can be used in versatile ways. The size is perfect to store magazines, books, or even blankets, allowing these items to still be visible even while store away. Dutch mid-century rattan pieces like these Rohé pieces have a well-established history and have been highly sought after in the past years. This is mainly because of the craftsmanship and modern design that The Netherlands has been known for over a century.

    Rohé Noordwolde has been the main manufacturer of 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 couple of 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.
