About this item

£650 each - One available

nb. This has now been reupholstered in an off white chunky knit wool called Coda, by Kvadrat.

Rudolf Wolf, 1919 – 1989, is like Friso Kramer and Wim Rietveld one of the most important industrial designers of the Netherlands. He studied architectural and graphic design, after which he went to work on the lighting division of Philips, before going freelance in 1948.

In 1955 Rudolf Wolf designed a series of metal furniture for Elsrijk using innovative approaches to welding. These chairs are an excellent example of his work during the period. Minimal steel rod frame, bakelite arm-rests and fabric covered wooden seat and backrest. Newly reupholstered in Kvadrat Tonus wool.

Wolf only designed furniture for a period of 15 years, before devoting himself to being an artist making paintings and objects made of steel, aluminium and plexiglass.
