Gispen Dukdalf Furniture line - Gispen - Peter de Boer
Dukdalf is a sturdy multipurpose table programme which features a characteristic frame. While designing Dukdalf, Peter de Boer took inspiration from the wooden mooring dolphins (dukdalfs in Dutch) where boats berth. The eye-catching legs are sturdy and rugged-looking and contrast well with the slender look of the tabletop. The Dukdalf table comes in many shapes and sizes, which makes it a comprehensive table programme.
Peter de Boer (1952) went to technical secondary school (MTS), studied mechanical engineering at higher technical level (HTS) and Industrial Design at the Rietveld Academy.
He worked for a short time as a freelance designer and in 1980 joined Gispen as a product designer.
