  • Revolt Chair on a Stamp

    Arts & Culture, Industrial Design

    The 'Revolt' Chair, created in 1953 by Friso Kramer for ahred, was considered revolutionary and now the chair has been selected by TNT post as one of the ten 'style icons' representing typically Dutch products, to be included on the series of stamps 'Tien voor Nederland 2007' (Ten for the netherlands 2007)

    More than just an icon, the chair, created in 1953 by Friso Framer, was considered revolutionary, bypassing the traditional tubular frame for a bent sheet steel frame. The name 'Revoult' actually came from this idea of revolution, a revolution in the design and materials selected and Ahrend (the company the chair was desgined for) has not looked back.
