jac van den bosch

Jacob Pieter van den Bosch, better known as Jac. van den Bosch by Jacques van Den Bosch (Amsterdam, January 2, 1868 – The Hague, March 5, 1948) is primarily known as a Dutch furniture and interior designer. He was also a book brand designer.

As a draftsman at a furniture factory he taught H.P. Berlage, he would later collaborate on the realization of ‘t Binnenhuis. In the period 1898-1900 he was a traveling salesman at Faience and Tegelfabriek Holland in Utrecht. he had his own business as a draftsman and designer. In his own time, he designed tile patterns that the factory initially refused to put into production. As a salesman, he presented these designs to his customers who were so enthusiastic that they were put into production with great success.

His work as an interior designer has been influenced by the English artists William Morris and John Ruskin. He adopted the concept of community art from them. He also believed that people should be educated in better furnishing their homes. His work is very diverse and includes furniture, paintings, clocks, binding designs, utensils and drawings. He also designed a number of complete pieces of furniture. Two of these can still be seen in the Drents Museum in Assen, the Centraal Museum in Utrecht and the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam.
