Rudolf Wolf, 1919 – 1989, is like Friso Kramer and Wim Rietveld one of the most important industrial designers of the Netherlands. He studied architectural and graphic design, after which he went to work on the lighting division of Philips, before going freelance in 1948. Wolf only designed furniture for a period of 15 years, before devoting himself to being an artist making paintings and objects made of steel, aluminium and plexiglass.
In 1955 Rudolf Wolf designed a series of metal furniture for Elsrijk using innovative approaches to welding. This chair is an excellent example of his work during the period. Minimal steel rod frame, bakelite arm-rests and fabric covered wooden seat and backrest. This model sits slightly more upright, so it can be used as a lounge chair or desk/occasional chair. Minor age wear to frame. Reupholstered in black leather.
