Sale price$950.00

Friso Kramer for Cirkel Ahrend, chair, ciranol, metal, The Netherlands, design 1953

This chair named ‘Revolt’ is designed by the Dutch designer Friso Kramer (1922-2019) that received a ‘Signe D’or Prize’ at the Triennale in Milan. This design strongly bears his self-invented philosophy and I quote: 'A good industrial design must have the interaction between functional purpose, production possibility and usability. Because if form does not contribute to function, it has no right to exist.' This chair was specifically designed for school purposes executed in a light and indestructible material. It features a transparent construction of clear lines and simple geometrical shapes, ‘less is more’ as Kramer would predicate. Although this chair is characterized by its simplicity, a lot of thinking and effort went into the development of the end product. An overall patina contributes to the original look of this Revolt chair.

Kindly note that the chair is in good, used condition with signs of age and use, including lacquer fading, scratches, and patina. Restoration is possible before shipping by our experienced craftspeople in our own in-house restoration atelier. With high attention for the original, they make sure every piece retains its value and is ready for the many years to come.

Of course, a locally organized restoration is possible as well.
