Born in 1922 in Papendrecht, Holland, Martin Visser 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 the owner of Dutch furniture manufacturing company ‘t Spectrum, who invited Visser to head up the design of ‘t Spectrum’s new collections—a position he held until the 1970s.
Visser’s work is characterised by a rational and unadorned aesthetic expressed through an economical approach to materials. Here is presented his wenge and laminate series. A pair of side tables. Laminate good, minor wear to wood. Will split on request.
