Unique prototype from the LC03 lounge chair designed by Maarten van Severen and Fabian Schwaerzler for Pastoe, Holland 2003. This chair has a solid metal structure and a metal seat. Roughly finished but useable. We acquired this chair directly from Pastoe who had it in storage for 10 years. This chair was made by Maarten van Severen in the Pastoe workshop ca 2003. This is 1 of 2 made prototypes, the other one was made with fixed flax seat. The chair still has some tape on it and marker marks. But that’s the charme of this prototype.
Maarten Van Severen (Antwerp, June 5, 1956 – Gent, February 21, 2005) was a Belgian furniture designer and interior architect. He had an artistic family: his father was the abstract working painter Dan Van Severen and his brother Fabian Van Severen is also designer. Maarten Van Severen began to study architecture in Ghent, starting in 1986 and designed furniture. He is considered one of the few Belgian designers who managed to penetrate the international Design Olympics. Van Severen died at the age of 48 from the effects of cancer.
Provenance; Pastoe 2003-2013
