Martin Visser sofa / sofa bed


‘t Spectrum, Netherlands 1950s


SOLD 19.08.17

Martin Visser (born 1922) was a celebrated Dutch furniture designer and art collector. He became Head Furniture Buyer for De Bijenkorf department store in Amsterdam after he presented one of the store’s buyers a set of furniture he had self-produced for a friend. In 1954, while working at Bijenkorf, Visser impressed manufacturing company ‘t Spectrum, who invited Visser to head up the design team – a position he held until the 1970s.

Visser’s work is charactered by a rational minimalism. His use of square steel tubing for the legs of his chairs, tables, and storage pieces has become his signature. This is an exceptional piece, reupholstered in a tan/blush velvet that has an appearance of a luminescent suede. The back rolls back, in a mechanism which pulls the seat flat to transform the piece into a single bed for guests.
