  • Description
    This desk is most probably designed by the Dutch architect and furniture designer Anton Hamaker. He has more than four hundred buildings to his name and in addition to being an architect, he was also a sought-after furniture designer. Hamaker was therefore mainly active in the Amsterdam School period, which spanned about twenty years from 1910 onwards.The heavily patinated brass label of 't Woonhuys boasts on the inside of the left cupboard door. A famous Dutch furniture factory that was founded in 1907 and belonged to the highest segment of the market. Individual expression was of paramount importance and its furniture was usually made on request.


    This desk is eccentric in design and proportions. Black-colored legs stand on feet and together with the rectangular views, a kind of lightness is added to the relatively large legs. A simple but well thought-out solution to mask a rather colossal base. The above cupboards protrude prominently over the black legs and the doors are equipped with pyramid-shaped bobbins. Behind each door are three drawers. The writing platform still bears the cotton inlay and the overall woodwork consists of ebony with a subdued drawing combined with a profound patina.At this point we can say that we are dealing with a series of expressive elements. Typical for a piece of furniture from 't Woonhuys and unique in its style.


    This desk is in good condition consistent with age and use. The linen top is original and has 'used look'. Depending on the preference of the customer, this can be restored.
