Hendrik Gerben (Henk) Wouda (1885-1946) was an early modernist architect and furniture designer strongly influenced by the work of Frank Lloyd Wright. This is shown in one of his best known works, his private residence in Wassenaar.
From 1910 to 1912 he worked for H.P. Berlage (the Dutch master Architect) where it is said his sense for space and proportions was formed.
His style was defined as rationalist and was part of the ‘Haagse Stijl’: sober, modern and free of ornament. Carefully chosen colour schemes became one of his signature touch.
He was head of the modern department at the Dutch company Pander, a large manufacturer producing high end furniture in a wide range of styles.
With the designs for Pander he took part in the Exposition des Art Décoratifs of 1925 in Paris.
Besides furniture for Pander he also designed for other important modernist manufacturers such as LOV (Labor Omnia Vincit) and Metz & Co.
Wouda was a teacher to Cor Alons and Frits Spanjaard. He was known to share his ideas with Dudok, Vilmos Huszar en Piet Zwart; other influential figures in Dutch modernist design history.
