Haagse School Desk in Wood - 1930's
Haagse School desk in wood from the 1930s, made in the Netherlands. Geometric shapes and simple proportions, typical of The Hague School movement.
The Interbellum, the period between the two World Wars, was a time when Dutch culture blossomed. Architects, designers and artists set themselves the aim to shape a brighter, modern future by changing the way people live. The city of The Hague saw the rise of the so-called Hague School, a luxurious and modern design style. It is a variation of the international Art Deco style, recognisable for its straight lines and cubist/geometric shapes, simple proportions and constructivist decorations. ‘Form follows function’ was a key principle for designers of The Hague School. This specific piece is an example of late The Hague School, recognisable by the asymmetric composition, rather than the symmetric shapes from before 1926.
