About this vintage design furniture

Gerard van den Berg created The Rock sofa in the 70s. Produced by the Montis company he founded with his brother Ton in 1947. This entity enabled him to realize his desire to breathe new life into Dutch design, an idea he had been nurturing since the start of his apprenticeship in his father's workshop in Hellevoetsluis. He continued his apprenticeship at the Rotterdam School of Technology. He takes a great interest in the materials he uses, and can even be said to be at the origin of his creations, when the structure is generally the epi- center of design. He generally uses leather, which he stretches over his structures, bringing that finesse that is representative of his style. His years of experimentation enabled the brothers to invent a new upholstery technique known as "Jacketing", in which a piece of leather is stretched over a metal structure with the aid of a zipper. This process is used on this and other models such as the Mantis and Butterfly. It is no longer produced in its original form, but in a version with a lowered backrest. The structure consists of a metal frame upholstered in foam and covered in black leather. It features a deep seat. Its imposing backrest allows you to zone your space while offering exceptional comfort. In very good condition, entirely reupholstered in our workshop. Reference : 304119
