e15 – Ferdinand Kramer – Calvert Chess – Coffee table


Born in Frankfurt (22 January 1898 – 4 November 1985), Ferdinand Kramer is a modernist architect and designer. In retrospect, Kramer is an outstanding representative of minimalist architectural and design practice. Consistency, functional use, balanced proportions and perfect craftsmanship characterize the furniture from different phases of his life.

CALVERT is from a series of coffee tables, designed by German functionalist architect Ferdinand Kramer during his time in America. Part of his successful „Knock-Down“ furniture series, it consists of a table top and two crossing invertible sheets serving as a base for the table. Celebrating 120 years Ferdinand Kramer®, CALVERT CHESS is based on a cardboard picnic version Kramer originally proposed for Coca-Cola in 1951. The special edition features a silkscreen black chessboard printed on natural oak lacquered.
