Originally manufactured by Dutch company De Cirkel in 1953, Friso Kramer’s ‘Revolt’ was designed to be used at a dining table or desk and was made from painted moulded plywood and powder-coated steel. It has been used in schools and offices for several decades and has attained cult status among architects and interior designers.
While inspired by the moulded plywood chairs of Eames and Jacobsen, the ‘Revolt’ chair has industrial qualities that are more akin to French designer Jean Prouvé’s aesthetic. The legs are not metal tube, as in most similar designs of this period, but folded sheet metal ending in push-fit rubber feet. The result is a variation on the post-war utilitarian style. It won ‘Best Interior Design Product’ at the 2005 Dutch Design Awards.
