Fristho (1921-1978) was a design manufacturer in the north of The Netherlands. Jean Baptist Merckx and Gustaaf Andries de Vries founded the company. They had a good eye for the time and at an early stage adopted both Scandinavian and American design. In the sixties, Fristho advertised themselves with being 'No. 1 in Nordic design'. At the same time Fristho was rooted in Dutch functionalism.
Please note that the cabinet shows signs of wear and use. For further details, we encourage you to reach out to our team of design specialists.
