Friso Kramer’s Chair (Premsela Design Stories)
Dutch designer Friso Kramer (born 1922) is an important pioneer of industrial design. The celebrated Revolt Chair, which he designed for manufacturer Ahrend/De Cirkel in 1953, is a classic in the history of industrial design in the Netherlands. From its introduction, the chair was considered highly innovative and soon won a place in classrooms, offices and homes around the world. Kramer used steel plating for the frame, creating an essentially indestructible product–one of the first chairs to be mass produced.
