BRUNO MATHSSON (1907–1988)
Sweden’s most successful architect and furniture designer of the 20th century came from a family of craftsmen. Bruno Mathsson quickly became interested in the emerging modern age, however, mainly in architects such as Gunnar Asplund, Marcel Breuer, Alvar Alto or Le Corbusier. Soon, in the early 1930s, he designed light, modern beech and birch furniture, strapped and without cushions: Pernilla, his series Eva or Maria. In 1964, his Superellipse table, which he had designed with Piet Hein (1905–1996), appeared for the first time, followed by the Jetson armchair in 1966. In the 70s and 80s Mister, Minister, Mia, Milton and Mina followed - all models with tubular steel frames and upholstered. All these models are made in Vänamo, Sweden by Mathsson International. We were allowed to visit Bruno Mathsson’s house in a private tour.


BRUNO MATHSSON (1907–1988)
Schwedens erfolgreichster Architekt und Möbeldesigner des 20.Jahrhunderts kam aus einer Handwerkerfamilie. Bruno Mathsson begann sich aber schnell für die aufkommende Moderne zu interssieren, hauptsächlich für Architekten wie Gunnar Asplund, Marcel Breuer, Alvar Alto oder Le Corbusier. Bald, in den frühen 1930er Jahren, entwarf er leichte, moderne Buchen-und Birkenmöbel gegurtet und ohne Polster: Pernilla, seine Serie Eva oder Maria.1964 erschien zum ersten Mal sein Tisch Superellipse, den er mit Piet Hein (1905–1996) entworfen hatte, dann 1966 der Sessel Jetson. In den 70er und 80er Jahren folgten Mister, Minister, Mia, Milton und Mina – alles Modelle mit Stahlrohrgestellen und gepolstert. Alle diese Modelle werden in Vänamo in Schweden bei Mathsson International gefertigt. Bruno Mathssons Haus durften wir in einer Privatführung besichtigen.
