Minimal, refined and timeless...
These two were designed in 1960 by Martin Visser for 't Spectrum. They are from the first production series.
Martin Visser was a key figure of post-war modernism. The construction and the proportions of these chairs are as clear as possible, closely related to constructivism and minimal art. The details were important. Martin Visser demanded high quality craftsmanship. He challenged the metal workers to create seemless, and exact welded corners, which is labor intensive work. The sling seats were originally produced in a Gipsy camp specialized in leather.
These vintage chairs are in an excellent condition. The only deficit is a small spot where the chrome is damaged on the end of a metal bar. (see the pictures). The leather is still almost as good as new.
