Friso Kramer, Bijenkorf Bookcase Pair for Asmeta, 1953

About

Rare metal bookcase shelving units designed by Friso Kramer for De Bijenkorf, produced by Asmeta in 1953. Martin Visser commissioned Friso Kramer to design a simple usable shelving unit for De Bijenkorf. These bookcases were designed in the colors of De Bijenkorf in the 1950s. De Bijenkorf is an exclusive department store still existing and selling high quality clothes brands, watches. But also toys, books and expensive design of course. This modular shelving unit has dark blue sides and yellow backsides and which can be adjusted in any wanted composition. These units are complete and in a very good original clean condition, some minimal paint loss and wear but one of the nicest shelves I've seen. This pair of bookcases are a must have for any modernist design lover or collector, hard to find in this condition and it’s just like an abstract work of art when you see it. The designs of Friso Kramer are highly sought after because of their progressive designs. Even though this chair was designed in 1953, this is still in production at Ahrend. With few modern changes to the materials but the shape is still identical. Friso Kramer was a functionalist, all of his pieces are well thought about and amazingly executed. Even though most of his designs were produced in large numbers the process before that was really intense and time taking. And the result of that was a great production process with fantastic ergonomic result. We are specialized in the Industrial designs by Friso Kramer and we have built a large collection of Friso Kramer furniture.
