1958, Martin Visser, Spectrum, Very Rare Small Original First Version Black Base




Martin Visser sleeping sofa, short version (!), in grey mixed fabric with black base. This sofa can be turned into a bed by pulling the seat (pictures #2 and #4).

We are a specialist, based in Holland, even spoke with Martin Visser about the differences and his ideas about it. Martin Visser told us he didn’t like too much the version with the round frame, but Spectrum convinced him in the seventies to create a set, together with his new design cato fauteuil and de SE dining chairs. It would be a massive succes, as it was but … in concession for the best design, Martin Visser remained regretting this changes from a rectangular tube frame into a round tube frame.

The sofa shows some traces of wear like some light wear, but no damage, and just a few lighter/white stains (#15). The frame has some loss of black paint and some rusty spots. In the back two screws are sticking out a bit of the left backrest (#11 and #12). In the front legs are 2 holes per leg (#14).

The weight is 11 kg

The dimensions when pulled out is a seat height of 32 cm and the depth is 96 cm
