Maaskant, Van Dommelen, Kroos, Senf
Bert de Bruijn
The Johnson Wax premises consist of a small production unit, a large storage area and an office building, ranged around a patio. Johnson Sr., a friend and patron of Frank Lloyd Wright, gave Maaskant a free hand with the offices. The result, hovering like a boomerang above the ornamental pond, is an expression of purely aesthetic considerations. Its structure, plans and details all display a like sculptural quality. This sculptural element is no addition, the entire building is sculpture.
