Design: 1983

Elegant open frame, and soft comfortable turquoise leather bucket seat.

The Montis Chaplin chair was designed by the Dutchman Gerard van den Berg. He also designed the Montis Charly armchair.

97.6 x 58 x 47.5 cm

Note:

Gerard van den Berg, born in 1947, has been cultivating and refining his creative talents since his formative years. Even during his early education in elementary school, he found himself drawn to the realms of painting and sculpture, laying the foundation for his lifelong dedication to artistic expression. This early exposure to creativity was complemented by a deep-seated technical acumen, nurtured through firsthand experience at his father's furniture company.

Drawing from this unique blend of artistic flair and technical expertise, van den Berg approaches his designs with meticulous attention to detail. Prior to putting pen to paper, he methodically evaluates each concept against a backdrop of technical considerations, ensuring a seamless integration of form and function. This harmonious fusion of design and engineering underscores every aspect of his creative process.

Until 1990, van den Berg collaborated on numerous projects for Montis, the furniture company he co-founded with his brother. Subsequently, in 1991, he embarked on a new chapter by establishing his own seating furniture company, Label. In addition to his work with Label, van den Berg's design prowess extends to collaborations with renowned brands such as Molteni, Wittmann, Lensvelt, and Design on Stock.

Characterized by a synthesis of clean aesthetics and daring material choices, van den Berg's designs exude an effortless elegance. Whether juxtaposing hard metal with soft upholstery or allowing the inherent qualities of materials to take center stage, his creations captivate with their understated sophistication.

Throughout his illustrious career, Gerard van den Berg has garnered recognition and accolades, including the prestigious Kho Liang Prize (1984), the Mobilia Innovation Prize (1990), the Interior Architecture Prize (1991), and multiple awards for the best Dutch furniture design (1984 and 1997). These accolades stand as a testament to van den Berg's enduring influence and unwavering commitment to excellence in the field of furniture design.
