About Bas Van Pelt
Bas Van Pelt was a interior and furniture designer whose work is marked by a clean, modernist aesthetic inspired by the Amsterdam School and designers such as Hendrik Wouda (1885-1946) and Jan Muntendam (1882-1938). Active in the resistance during the Second World War, Van Pelt was imprisoned in a concentration camp and died shortly after it was liberated.
