Gem Chair by Brian Dreesman



Gem Chair by Brian Dreesman

What better design to open a new week on Chair Blog with than this Gem of a Chair by Brian Dreesman? A Gem in many respects, the eye catcher being that it is a new approach to chair design not seen before in the over 3,000 chairs we have featured by now.

I have a feeling Brian has a Dutch or German ancestry. Not only by his name, but also because I see some early 20ieth century design parallels in this chair. Strait lines, no curves was typically what Berlage prior to De Stijl and Rietveld as member of De Stijl propagated.

In addition this seems a comfy chair and comfy was not typically something those famous early 20ieth century chairs stood out by.

Brian is a Studio Artist, recently graduated from Iowa State University. He found inspiration for this chair by the way gem stones are set in jewelry.

This is what I would call De Stijl 21st Century!
