1950s Dining/Conference Table by Friso Kramer for Ahrend de Cirkel, Netherlands
Rare large dining / conference “Revolt” table designed by Friso Kramer, manufactured by Ahrend de Cirkel in the Netherlands, circa 1950-1955. This high quality table has a dark grey black metal base with a white laminated wooden top. This use of materials give it an eye-catching Industrial style. The shape of the legs reveals this is a Revolt model, making it a highly recognizable Friso Kramer piece. The short sides of the tabletop have a slightly bent shape, giving the top a unique hexagon shape. In good original condition with minor wear consistent with age and use, preserving an amazing patina. Friso Kramer was born in Amsterdam in 1922. As an Industrial and furniture designer and as a member of influential groups and movements, Kramer’s ideas and creations have consistently worked to propel the modernist aesthetic of the Netherlands. In the period from 1948-1963 he was employed by De Cirkel, where he designed some of his most iconic pieces. A retrospective exhibition of his work was held in the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam in 1977. In 1979 Friso received the title ‘Royal Designer for Industry’ by de RSA (Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce) in London.
