30s P.E.L. Izeren art deco sidetable in Oak and Macassar for Genneper Molen
This rare side table was designed by P.E.L. Izeren and produced by the Dutch company Genneper Molen in 1930. The frame and top are made of solid oak, with four contrasting side slats in Macassar Ebony wood. The geometric, the beautiful wood grains give the table a refined modern appearance.
The details, materials and nearly modernist appearance of the design are exemplary for the Haagse School style.
This style was not so much inspired by the Classic European Art Deco capitals such as Paris and Vienna but more by other national and international architectural developments such as the work of Frank Lloyd Wright. In its particular application of geometric shapes, primary colors and its sophisticated cubist division of the surface, the Haagse School designers were also aware of De Stijl movement, led by contemporaries such as Gerrit Rietveld and Piet Mondriaan.
This side table is a beautiful example of the Haagse School style.
