Friso Kramer (1922-2019) was a Dutch industrial designer who was director of the design agency Ahrend from 1971 to 1983. He designed, among other things, the well-known Revolt chair and the Facet table . Kramer aimed for a product design that could function in complete harmony with people and their environment. The user should be able to forget the presence of the product. He himself said: 'If form does not contribute to the function, it has no right to exist.' His designs were unobtrusive and above all user-friendly. 'More is less' and 'form follows function' were therefore characteristic of his designs.
Between 1954 and 1965, Kramer designed designs for Auping, including the Ariadne, Couchette and the Euroika set. His designs are still an important part of Auping's history.
