Dutch Mid Century Brutalist Oak Armchairs by Paul Bromberg for Metz & Co, 1950s.
Dutch Design


These Mid-Century armchairs are designed by Paul Bromberg

in the fifties.

These chairs are totally made of wood, no nails or screws
have been used to construct it. Manufactured by Metz & Co in the
Netherlands. In 1908, the Metz & Co department store established itself in
Amsterdam. This company was founded in the eighteenth century on St.
Antoniebreestraat as a fabric store and in the twentieth century grew into a
leading department store in the field of furniture and modern design. At that
time, the department store provided a platform for progressive furniture designs
by foreign architects such as Le Corbusier, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Alvar
Aalto. Metz & Co is setting up part of the building as a workshop where
contemporary designs can be made. Gerrit Rietveld, among others, made modernist
chairs here that have been sold by the department store since 1930.
