Gispen – 100 jaar design van vaderlandse bodem


Zeldzame ontwerpen te zien in Rotterdam

Wie kent ze niet; de stalen buisframe stoelen van Gispen, de Giso lamp of de Mondial stoel? De producten van de Nederlandse meubelfabrikant zijn haast niet weg te denken uit het interieur, zowel thuis als op kantoor. De ontwerpen blinken vaak uit in hun eenvoud, zonder concessies te doen aan het comfort. Gispen bestaat dit jaar precies honderd jaar en dat is reden voor museum Boijmans van Beuningen om een tentoonstelling aan dit stukje Nederland design te wijden. Het Rotterdamse museum viert het jubileum met de tentoonstelling Gispen Specials – De klant is koning. Voor de tentoonstelling heeft Boijmans ruim vijftig bijzondere, vaak in kleine oplage gemaakte, producten geselecteerd.


Gispen Specials

Ook op Soekis zien we regelmatig producten van Gispen voorbij komen. Meestal de iconische stoelen met metalen buisframe, de fauteuils van Rietveld of de bekende kleurodesk van Cordemeyer, maar een enkele keer staan er ook zeldzame exemplaren in de Soek. Juist deze zeldzame, onbekende ontwerpen zijn in Rotterdam te zien. De specials tonen de kwaliteit en de flexibiliteit van dit bedrijf dat de Nederlandse vormgeving wereldberoemd maakte. In vrijwel alle gevallen kwamen de specials voort uit een specifieke vraag van een klant of opdrachtgever die uit het reguliere aanbod van Gispen (en andere meubelfabrieken) geen keuze kon maken. Een voorbeeld hiervan is dit wiegje dat W.H. Gispen ontwierp voor het eerste kind van een Gronings echtpaar.

Een ander voorbeeld is dit antroposofische bureau dat speciaal is ontworpen voor het gebouw van de Gasunie in Groningen.

    Howdy! I realize this is somewhat off-topic but I had to ask.
    Does operating a well-established blog such as yours require a lot of work?

    I am completely new to blogging however I do write in my diary on a daily basis.

    I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my own experience and
    views online. Please let me know if you have any ideas
    or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it!

    Today, while I was at work, my sister stole my
    iphone and tested to see if it can survive a thirty foot
    drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and
    she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I had to
    share it with someone!

    Hey would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m having a hard time choosing
    between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your
    design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.

    P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

    Hello! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any
    trouble with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and
    I ended up losing months of hard work due to no
    back up. Do you have any methods to protect against hackers?

    My developer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on a variety of websites for about a year and am
    nervous about switching to another platform.
    I have heard great things about
