A pair of light grey polyester lounge chairs model No. 416 designed by Wim Rietveld (son of Gerrit Thomas Rietveld) and Andre Cordemeyer for Gispen, Culemborg 1957. This first Dutch polyester armchair was made of on piece of molded polyester, a new technique for the Dutch furniture making market. This experimental chair was a success and the start of something beautiful. The seat is supported by a tubular solid metal frame with rubber shock mounts. This chairs have an amazing light grey color with visible fibers and are in very nice authentic condition. These chairs are extremely hard to find and in a pair I have never seen them before. Only once in a long while a single chair pops up and mostly its in bad shape, not the amazing original condition these are in.
