A.R Cordemeijer “Cleopatra” Daybed for Auping, circa 1960, Netherlands
A.R (Dick) Cordemeijer “Cleopatra” Daybed for Auping. Teak ends and dark charcoal grey enameled metal frame. Reupholstered. Circa 1960, Netherlands. Very Good Vintage Condition. Born in 1924 in Bussum, Holland, André Robert (A. R.) Cordemeyer was a prolific Dutch industrial designer active in the 1950s and ‘60s, working chiefly for manufacturing brand Gispen. Limited verifiable information, however, is available about him today—and it is heavily debated whether or not Cordemeyer is the same person as Dutch designer Dick Cordemeijer, who designed the famous Cleopatra Daybed (1953-4) for Auping. One theory suggests that their biographical facts are often conflated because Dick Cordemeijer changed his name to André Cordemeyer after working for Auping.
