Here a very nice and hard to find set of 12 Industrial so called ´Pyramid´ chairs designed by Wim Rietveld for Ahrend de Cirkel in 1960. The Pyramid chair was designed to be as well functional, as nice and cheap to produce, and because Rietveld managed to put all those 3 desires in his design this chair won a famous ‘Signe d’Or’ in 1960. These chairs are from the first series and are nice in combination with the warm teak wood and black frame. Chairs have a black lacquered metal u structure frame and a teak plywood seat and back which is a very nice and strong combination that fits the period they wer designed in. Chairs have some normal but minimal age wear from usage, which is normal from stacking them but no big damages. Chairs would look great in an industrial modern design interior. Not many of these chairs were produced at the time compared to other chairs made by Ahrend. These chairs are becoming more scarce every day, great investment. Priced individually 13 chairs left in stock.
