Chair for Vincent Holiday Home

This seat comes from a holiday home for the Vincent family in Nieuwpoort-Bad. The cottage from 1931 was an early and traditional design by the young Léon Stynen (1899-1990), who later would go on to become a leading modernist architect. Stynen also designed furniture for the home, including built-in cabinets in the kitchen and bedrooms, and a dining suite. For the living room, he created two low armchairs, upholstered in a grey-green fabric that evokes the undulating sea. Emile Vincent considered having all the joinery and furniture carried out by the École de Menuiserie in Brussels, a school that offered free woodworking classes to working-class students. It is not clear whether the furniture indeed was made there.
