Friso Kramer

The Dutch master of design Friso Kramer was a vital driving force behind the development of Netherlands’ modern design aesthetics. In the 1950s, he was a member of the “Goed Wonen” or ‘Good Living’ foundation that aimed to reinstate the prewar quality of life. He was also presented with the distinction ‘Royal Designer for Industry by the British Royal Society of Arts.

Kramer’s molded plywood and steel Revolt Chair (1953; Krame Chair) is held up as being representative of the Dutch modernist style. It was considered very innovative when it was first introduced, garnering accolades at the 1954 Milan Triennale, the prestigious world design fair. The Revolt Chair was reintroduced in 2004 after years of it not being in production and the chair still holds an abiding appeal that ensures it fits in all environments.

The chair shown above is a replica chair.
