metal, h 254cm × w 90cm × d 100cm More details

From 1933 the Dutch state-run telephone company (PTT) put up hundreds of public telephone boxes throughout the Netherlands. With its minimalist glass and steel construction, this structure was a paragon of modernity. Along with a pay telephone it was furnished with a writing ledge and a package rest. Everything is suspended from two rods.
