Amsterdam 1922 – 2019
Nice set of 4 Revolt chairs designed by Friso Kramer for Ahrend de Cirkel, Holland 1953. Though the Revolt chair was already designed in 1953, the production started in 1958. The chairs have a folded metal base which is very strong and a ciranol seat and back. Some chairs are stamped with the impressed mark at the back (Ahrend de Cirkel). The chairs are in nice original condition, the nice light grey and blue lacquered metal frame has normal wear from age and usage. The seats and backs are in white ciranol and are in good condition too with only very minimal wear due to age and usage. This is for a very nice set with orange juice structured seats and backs. Nice matching set of 4 chairs.
The designs of Friso Kramer are highly sought after because of their progressive designs. Even though this chair was designed in 1953, this is still in production at Ahrend. With few modern changes to the materials but the shape is still identical. Friso Kramer was a functionalist, all of his pieces are well thought about and amazingly executed. Even though most of his designs were produced in large numbers the process before that was really intense and time taking. And the result of that was a great production process with fantastic ergonomic result.
We are specialized in the industrial designs by Friso Kramer and we have built a large collection of Friso Kramer furniture. If there is anything you are interested in please contact us with your request.
