Mart Stam (1899-1986)
tubular cantilevered chairs Mart Stam (1899 - 1986)
In 2005 I bought two chairs from Wim Smits, a friend
and colleague of mine. The chairs used to be owned by Jan Begeer.
They were designed by Mart Stam in 1924. As you see they have a chrome-plated tubular steel cantilever frame - the upholstery covers the steel springs inside it. Of course they are used inside; but I found the landscape in the back of our place a perfect backdrop to show them off.
