This rare Klismos stool/table was designed by T.H. Robsjohn Gibbings and produced by Saridis of Athens. This stool can function as a stool or table base by adding a glass top. This is the 1st production of this model from 1961 made in Greek walnut and leather by Saridis of Athens. It is in fantastic, completely original condition, with tag and incised numbering. This stool lounge was part of the 1961 collection he designed for Saridis of Athens, inspired by the drawings he saw on ancient Greek vases. The woven seat is made of leather straps which are tight around the walnut frame. The design beholds Robsjohn-Gibbings’ philosophy of furniture design that is independent of time. The stone red wool cushion was added by the owner to protect this precious piece. Provenance: the Royal Dutch Shell building designed by architect Charles Pfister.
