Bastille Chair Designed By Piet Blom
Constructivist chair--an homage to De Stijl--by noted Dutch architect Piet Blom (1934-99). Made by Huizenga for the cafeteria of the Faculty Club (nicknamed The Bastille) at the University of Twente, a 1968 Blom project. Of an edition of 400 or so, fewer than 200 survived a renovation. Only a handful retain their original paint. You can buy an original one for $4250. I wonder how many you could make for that price.
This looks like a fun chair to build. Maybe a good use for that Festool domino you've got sitting in your shop.
It's nice to share these old pieces of furniture I find here. The members on several other woodworking forums I look at just don't seem to get it. If it isn't Arts and Crafts or Shaker they aren't interested. A pretty narrow view in my estimation.
