This is the first design auction organised by the Venduehuis der Notarissen. A special, varied auction with unique pieces. Unique because they were designed especially for this design auction; special because these pieces have never been taken into production; and varied because the range of objects we offer is wide. In short: this auction has something to offer for everyone.
The auction consists of three parts.
We start off with a large variety of design and decorative arts, from the KPC de Basel’s beautiful designs from the beginning of the twentieth century to the knotted chair by Marcel Wanders. But you will also find Paul Schuitema’s special Syst-o-color edition and an exhibition poster by Andy Warhol.
Additionally, we offer fourteen chairs designed by an equal amount of Dutch designers. These chairs were previously offered for auction at the Venduehuis prior to their makeover. The task set for our designers was clear: be creative. The results deserve to be called unique. Every designer has chosen a charity to which the auction proceeds will go. To maximise the proceeds, the Venduehuis will not charge commission.
Stichting Zetel has offered a collection of chairs for the final part of the auction. Stichting Zetel is a charitable foundation that, as initiator and catalyst of multiple projects, gives added value to the meaning and development of chairs. Their collection consists of special and unique pieces, which makes this the perfect chance for you, as visitor, to obtain the most beautiful chairs. All are pieces that have never been taken into production or of which only small series have been produced.
This website officially marks the first design auction as organised by the Venduehuis der Notarissen. We hope many more will follow.
