Willy van der Meeren (1923-2002) was a Belgian architect and designer, who was once a pupil of Le Corbusier. In the 1950s he created a number of pieces for Tubax - a manufacturer regarded as a pioneer of Modernism in Belgium - including simple multi-coloured wardrobes and writing desks for schools and colleges, as seen here.
