The collapsible display stands were designed by Guustaaf Jansen from Zutphen, the
architect who also designed our home Martinshof.
The displays within the stand were designed and made by the then young sculptor
Piety Slegers from Velp (near Arnhem). Slegers had recently returned from an
apprenticeship with Henry Moore in England and the latter's influence shows.
The Martinshof Story
Lighting within the stand (here obliterated by the photographers flash) was mounted
behind the upper front horizontal panel. This dropped soft shadows downwards, rather
than the stark ones sideways as shown here.
