Wim Rietveld 1st Edition Oak Top 'Pyramid' Compass Table Ahrend the Cirkel 1959


Beautiful 1st Edition ''Pyramid'' Compass Table by Dutch designer Wim Rietveld for Ahrend The Cirkel 1959 Wim Rietveld (one of the sons of Dutch De Stijl designer Gerrit Rietveld) was an industrial designer who started his career just after WWII at Gispen and later in 1958 he joined Friso Kramer at Ahrend/De Cirkel In the early 1950s the Dutch designers where under heavy influence by the works of the great international designers like Charles and Ray Eames and Jean Prouvé. With new post war production technologies available these influences reflected strongly in some of their designs Important to all of the works of the young industrial designer Wim Rietveld and Friso Kramer was that 'design follows function'. The Pyramid table is one of those inspired designs of that period and is reminiscent to the Compass leg table by Jean Prouve translated into a lighter and easier to produce folded metal frame However is has been designed to be more functional and the possibility to make these tables stackable (a handy functional feature for use in universities and conference rooms for easy storage to create a flexible interior) This Pyramid table retains its original formica finished top underneath a custom fit made vintage rustic oak top The custom made vintage oak top slides over the original existing formica top but can also be fixed directly to the metal base construction Literature (photo 3 and 4): ''Wim Rietveld Industrieel ontwerper'' by Ed van Hinte for 010 publishers Rotterdam.
