Berlage chair - Gispen

2004 Richard designed the Berlage chair originally for the Gemeentemuseum The Hague. The museum building is designed by famous Dutch architect Berlage and the museum also holds the biggest collection of his work, including most of his furniture. This was the starting point for the design by Richard. He took a chair Berlage has designed for a Dutch family and translated it into the 20th century. The chair had a very characteristic construction. this was his starting point. While studying the original chair in the depot of the museum, he found out the upholstery of the chair was very random connected on the bottom of the chair. This randomness he used in the seat of the chair. Latter a stool and a bar-stool were added to the collection Part of the permanent collection of the Gemeentemuseum The Hague and Museum Boijmans van Beuningen Rotterdam.
