Floris Fiedeldij umbrella stand in a great color combination black white. Produced by Dutch company Artimeta Soest.
After the second world war, Artimeta was one of the Dutch companies which became succesful producing small metal furniture and lighting designs in a new, innovative European style. Besides the particular collaboration with Mathieu Matégot the origin for using slender shapes and folded sheet metal for their designs can be found in the work of French and Italian designers. This umbrella stand is documented in the Artimeta catalogue. During the early fifties, Mathieu Matégot was highly involved in the developing proces of the Artimeta products, which is clearly visible in this sheet metal umbrella stand design.
