Chromed tubular steel chair with green skai upholstery designed by Bas van Pelt in the 1930s. The chair was carried out by My Home Woninginrichting in The Hague. Furniture designer Bas van Pelt (1900-1945) took over this furniture shop from his father in 1931 and focused on designing modern interiors and furniture, such as this tubular steel chair. Van Pelt also used furniture from others in his designs for interiors, such as Thonet, d3 and Gispen. The company soon expanded with branches in Amsterdam, Enschede and Maastricht. Because of his resistance during the war, Van Pelt was sent to a concentration camp and died in 1945. His daughter Janni van Pelt took over the company in the 1950s with her husband Dick Brouwers. The company, currently 'Bas van Pelt Binnenhuisarchitectuur', is now located again on the Lange Houtstraat in The Hague.
