Sitting furniture made by Gerard van den Berg in all respects is the result of designing and shaping. One of the innovations Gerard van den Berg has encouraged, in post-war furniture design, is the notion of not basically starting from the framework. Concerning the frame you are always tied to a particular gauge and this determines your design . If you take the lining as starting point , it usually gives you much more freedom in your options . For example, the hammock gave Gerard the idea that, by smart use of the upholstering, he was able to create optimum comfort without needing a heavy interior construction. As a result, he has been able to make his design nimble and slender yet sturdy and comfortable. The ‘Bobo’ fauteuil is a fine example of this way of designing. his uniquely shaped shell comes with a lot of possible sitting possibilities. Changing sitting positions in an armchair is kind of difficult because the arm rest is always in the same position. With Bobo van den Berg found a more flexible way of sitting, by making the armrest moveable. The chair is in good condition consistent with age and use.
