Modernist Isokon stool and original tray

A truly iconic piece of modernist design, imported by Jack Prichards fledgling Isokon company and named design No.1. Used to furnish the 'Isobar' designed by Marcel Breuer at the lawn road flats, Hampstead ( now known as the Isokon Building ). This was home to many of the Bauhaus movement fleeing Nazi Germany and was frequented by many of the leading artists of the day including Ben Nicholson, Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth. Made of birch plywood it is incredibly light. The tray bears the Made in Estonia by Venesta stamp. Strangely with all this history the original designer is unknown, but Walter Gropius had a hand in its development and manufacture under the direction of Jack Prichard.
