Aloysius (Louis) Allegonda van Teeffelen (1921-1972) was a Dutch industrial designer credited with contributing to the midcentury modern design movement in the Netherlands, and is most well-known for his work with the Dutch furniture manufacturer WéBé. Van Teeffelen, who left the company in 1967, was the most significant and successful designer in WéBé’s history. Although WéBé is no longer in business, van Teeffelen’s designs are considered excellent examples of mid-century modern design and are highly sought-after by collectors today. It is speculated that van Teeffelen also designed products—mainly his signature teak modular wall systems, secretaries and desks—for the Dutch furniture brand Topform around the same time he was designing for Wébé. Our editors are working hard to confirm this story. Van Teeffelen passed away in his hometown in 1972, at the age of 51.
