LaWo1 Wooden Lounge Chair by Han Pieck for Lawo Ommen

About Han Pieck: 

Han Pieck developed this piece during WWII during his study in Amsterdam. Pieck intended to produce 2000 Lawo chairs in the factory in Ommen but with shortages in materials post war, only 1200 pieces were produced before the operation went bankrupt. This forced Pieck to sell his proprietary manufacturing process to Morris & Co. a company from Glasgow UK, which then produced Pieck’s second design, the Bambi dining chair.
