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.
