About Visser & Meijwaard

Visser & Meijwaard is a design studio by Steven Visser (1985) and Vera Meijwaard (1988) founded in 2013 in Arnhem, The Netherlands. The designer duo creates distinct but minimalistic products of which versatile materials and clear shapes constitute the essence. In their designs they are guided by distinctive details and the way in which the product is constructed. From the archetypical gym buck to the super functional camping closet, Visser and Meijwaard use their characteristic features and find new ways to apply them.

Visser and Meijwaard met in 2008 at ArtEZ Institute of the Arts in Arnhem. During their studies they specialized in Product Design. After they graduated in July 2012, he with a collection of gentleman’s accessories, she with a collection of very feminine high heels, the idea arose to start a label together.

White Forest Chair by Robby Cabtarutti and Francesca Petricich

One of our readers asked me via e-mail:

I am hoping you can help me identify a chair that I have seen in Bellevue, Washington at the Microsoft building downtown. They are white metal dining chairs and have a design similar to the Vegetal Chair. I have a picture of the chair and the imprint on the bottom. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Yess there is a vague similarity with the Vegetal Chair, but only vague. I was also thinking Konstantin Grcic, but also vague only.

After some research I was able to come up with the answer.

Italian designers Robby Cabtarutti and his wife Francesca Petricich designed this chair for Gruppo Sintesi But I also found Fast Spa having the chair in its collection. I don’t know whether the 2 are connected.
