Friso Kramer’s Chair (Premsela Design Stories)

Yvonne Brentjens

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.
