Solid teak frames in the Traditionalist Style. In very good condition with a beautiful patina.

Kropholler was one of the first architects in the Traditionalist Style in the Netherlands. He has designed Churches, Convents and City Halls but also offices and houses. His designs for furniture are in the Medieval-Traditionalist Style. Constructive connection points and hinges are used as decoration in his designs for furniture.
