‘SZ 01’ LOUNGE CHAIR

PRODUCER: ‘T SPECTRUM 1960S

DESIGN: MARTIN VISSER

MEASUREMENTS: W 62 H 69 D 69 , SEAT 36 CM

PRICE: ON REQUEST

Of all the different SZ 01 rattan lounge chairs that have been produced in the last decades, this very early edition is the most original; only one supporting bar under the seat, and without supporting bar in the back, all original. Minimalism at its best! The chair was designed back in 1960 by Martin Visser ( Netherlands ), who can be mentioned in the same phrase as Cees Braakman and Friso Kramer.
Condition: The rattan as well as the matt chrome metal frame construction has been inspected well and there are no broken weldings, cracks, or broken / missing rattan pieces. All rattan is still attached perfect to the frame, and has a fantastic patina and color due to aging! This is a rare piece with minimal wear that hardly have been used by the previous owner.
In particular this SZ01 chair was clearly influenced by late fifties Danish design by o.a. Poul Kjaerholm and Fabricius Kastholm. The use of Rattan was also common for several Dutch chair designs by Dirk van Sliedregt and Rohe.
