Karel Petrus Cornelis de Bazel (1869-1923) is known in the Netherlands principally as an architect. He built many country villas in the Gooi (North Holland) and designed the headquarters of the Nederlandsche Handel Maatschappij in Vijzelstraat, Amsterdam. That he was also extremely active and influential in the field of interior design is less widely realized. The exhibition at the Gemeentemuseum was the first in history to present a representative selection of De Bazel’s designs for domestic interiors: luxury furniture and innovative glassware.
