Friso Kramer ‘Revolt’ Chair in Matte Red Lacquered Ciranol and Metal
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.
