About

Absolute museum-pieces! This are the one and only chairs, original in red, introduced on the exhibition in Brussels, 1958. We bought this chair from the family Cordemeyer. This are one of the first chairs ever produced! The shell is in fiberglass. Damage, but repaired (see picture #5). Furthermore traces of wear and some loss of paint/coating on the frame. A red polyester lounge chair model No. 416 designed by Wim Rietveld (son of Gerrit Thomas Rietveld) and André Cordemeyer for Gispen, Culemborg, 1957. This first Dutch polyester armchair was made of on piece of moulded polyester, a new technique for the Dutch furniture making market. This experimental chair was a success and the start of something beautiful. The seat is supported by a tubular solid metal frame with rubber shock mounts. This chair are in red but if you removed the paint it has an amazing original red color with visible fibers and is still in very nice authentic condition.The chairs are used after the exhibition in the house of family Cordemeyer in white. There are some repairs, made by André Cordemeyer himself what makes the chairs even more unique for museums. Also one chair, used in the same exhibition in 1958 in Brussels, where the atomium was introduced and exposed, in original red available (see picture #10) Painted in white Some spots and some loss of paint.
