Born in 1922 in Papendrecht, Holland, Martin Visser was a celebrate Dutch furniture designer and art collector. He became Head Furniture Buyer for De Bijenkorf department store in Amsterdam after he presented one of the store’s buyers a set of furniture he had self-produced for a friend. In 1954, while working at Bijenkorf, Visser impressed the owner of Dutch furniture manufacturing company ‘t Spectrum, who invited Visser to head up the design of ‘t Spectrum’s new collections—a postion he held until the 1970s.

Visser’s work is charactered by a rational, minimalist, unadorned aesthetic expressed through an economical approach to materials. His use of square steel tubing for the legs of his chairs, tables, and storage pieces has become his signature.

This is an exceptional piece, reupholstered in Pierre Frey merino wool & silk fabric.
