Super rare set of 8 Revolt folding 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 chair has a folded black painted metal base which was very strong and a rare dark green ciranol seat and back. This model is rare because the folding chair was only used in several buildings in Holland and Belgium. The set is in excellent original condition, with only minimal wear due to age and usage. This is for a very hard to find, collectible chair set with many hidden technical details. This is for sure my favorite design by Friso Kramer. Easy to store and stack as well.
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. Friso Kramer is often compared to Jean Prouve. Musea often show the Revolt chair next to the Standard chair by Jean Prouve, not withour reason.
