House Blanckaert – Singelyn 1932, Aalst, Belgium
Chromed steel, Macassar, burl wood, handwoven textile, and glass.
A unique modernist desk table made for Leo Singelyn, the brother-in-law of architect Antoon Blanckaert. Blanckaert designed the biggest part of the interior himself and stayed in the house until very recently.
The desk chair with its original fabric is the SS33 by Hans Luckhardt for DESTA Möbel Germany, released in 1931.
The house Blanckaert – Singelyn was considered as one of the first modernist housings in the region of Aalst. Together with his friend Gaston Eysselinck, both young architects were pioneering with architectural minimal concrete facades in the Flanders region.
