KADER design presents the A2-1 chair by the renowned Dutch designer and architect Mart Stam (1899-1989), designed for the collection of the Foundation ‘Goed Wonen’ in 1947.
This series of furniture was produced in the PASTOE factories in consignment by the Goed Wonen foundation.

Stam was a Dutch architect, urban planner, and furniture designer. He was extraordinarily well-connected, and his career intersects with important moments in the history of 20th-century European architecture, including chair design at the Bauhaus, the Weissenhof Estate, the Van Nelle Factory, an important modernist landmark building in Rotterdam, buildings for Ernst May’s New Frankfurt housing project then to Russia with the idealistic May Brigade, to postwar reconstruction in Germany.

His style of design has been classified as New Objectivity, an art movement formed during the depression in 1920s Germany, as a counter-movement and an out growth of Expressionism.
