SONNEVELD HOUSE ROTTERDAM
Assignment was to reprint the curtains that hung in front of the window of the large kitchen on the first floor of The Sonneveld House (Rotterdam 1933).
The curtains were supplied by the firm of Metz& Co, with a geometric pattern designed by Elise Djo Bourgeois.
Close inspection of the small samples remaining shows that the material has been hand-printed; it is not very difficult to trace small irregularities
The kitchen curtains can still be admired at The Sonneveld House in Rotterdam, near the NAI.
