Oosterhout, The Netherlands
Galvanitas got its start building industrial furniture for schools in The Netherlands. Today, the brand characterizes Dutch industrial design at its best. For Gestalt, the brand is represented by the iconic S16 chair. A classic reborn. Every single part of the S16 was specifically designed for the chair, with Galvanitas even using the original molds and production methods. All newly manufactured parts are entirely identical and interchangeable with the original parts. Exactly as it was before.
The Galvanitas philosophy is motivated by the country’s architecture, which embodies the whole philosophy of Dutch design. Everything the Dutch do has a thought process behind it. Everywhere you go, you can tell that designers have truly done their research, studied people in their space, and created the design around them.
