Vintage industrieel bureau, lessenaar, desk Friso Kramer
VERY RARE, hard to find wood topped industrial desk / table, with super shaped folded sheet metal feet
Designed by Friso Kramer for Ahrend de Cirkel in 1960's.
Only 1 left ( the lighter color, the second in line)
The condition is fairly good considering the age, the tables has been used in Schools and Universities
Wear consistent with age and use, the base has some oxidation, some tables have writing on it
Friso Kramer started working together with Wim Rietveld .
In this year they both got commissioned to design a program for school furniture.
They both worked on a chair (Result Chair) that was launched in 1958 and received various awards for this design.
Friso then worked solo on a student desk and teacher's desk that was launched together with the Result chair in 1958.
These desks are a hard find as many where discarded by the schools over the years and most of the furniture ended up on a scrap yard
The desk won, like a lot of designs by Friso Kramer, a Signe d´Or for its functionalism and design in that period!
Would be perfect as small desk or work tableWould look great in any mid century modernism design interior!
Size: 70 cm x 50 cm and 75 cm high
