Item Description

Dom Hans van der Laan writing table / desk. Rare and very collectible piece by renown Dutch Benedictine monk and architect Dom Hans van der Laan. Created in his signature architectural design of painted pine slats assembled with copper nails. This monumental piece was bought in 1994 at Galerie De Praktijk / Dirk Vermeulen in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Until 1994 the designs of Dom van der Laan were only made for his works of architecture, mainly abbeys and chapels. The galerie was the first to introduce his work to a larger audience. The piece is in very good all original condition with a wonderful patina. Dom Hans van der Laan (29 December 1904 – 19 August 1991) was a Dutch Benedictine monk and architect. He was a leading figure in the Bossche School. His theories on numerical ratios in architecture, in particular regarding the plastic number, were very influential.
