FM50 lounge chair by Cornelis Zitman for UMS Pastoe 1964, set of 2

About the item 

The FM series was drawn by Cornelis Zitman, a Dutch artist and sculptor who lended his creative abilities to UMS Pastoe for the development of a distinctly designed set of chairs, armchairs and sofas.

The original models were produced in small quantities, due to the high production costs, and are therefore quite rare. The FM series is designed in modular fashion, multiple parts can be joined in order to get to a sofa or to separate them into armchairs.

The FM50 chairs are characterized by a very strong forward frame, the front legs in 45 degrees compared to the back legs. The teak multiplex shells are machine bent and affixed to the legs by bolts. The inner part consists of multiple elastic straps are affixed to the wood frame. The pillows lay on top of the straps.

In this specific example, it concerns an FM50 lounge chair without armrests and an FM52 with a right armrest.

The chairs are upholstered in black Kvadrat Tonus.

About its condition

The chairs are in good vintage condition, with both the fabric and the leather straps having been replaced in a later stage. The teak had a couple of minor defects in the top layer of the multiplex, that have been mediated professionally.
