Comment
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 ‘Gigi’ fauteuil is a fine example of this way of designing. You can feel the lining of the chair almost just by looking at the chair. This uniquely shaped shell comes with a lot of possible sitting possibilities. A lounge chair to live in. This piece is from the early 1998 - 1999 years and is in good condition consistent with age and use.
