Furniture manufacturer Fristho was one of the most prominent Dutch furniture makers in the 1950s and ‘60s,
and ‘t Spectrum. The company was established in 1921 as Friesche Stoel-en Houtwarenfabriek (Friesian Chair and Wood Factory), referred to as Fristho for short, in the town of Franeker. It is unknown who established the factory, however, it is confirmed that in the beginning, the factory produced wooden chairs for the domestic market.
In the early 1950s, Fristho sought out young designers eager to embrace new styles, including the American designer William Watting, German designer Rudolf Glatzel, and Danish designer Inger Klingenberg (1932-1997). Watting’s 'Modern Art' collection, in particular, sparked Frishto’s new direction in furniture with Scandinavian influences.
Throughout the 1950s and ‘60s, Fristho became very successful producing a wide range of modernist furniture - spanning sideboards, wall units, coffee tables, and dining tables - that became representative of postwar European design.
