Axel Einar Hjorth Lovö chairs


Nordiska Kompaniet, Sweden, 1930s


£5,500 + VAT each. Pair available

Axel Einar Hjorth (18881959) was a major contributor to the burgeoning Swedish design culture that was recognised internationally in the 1920s and effectively introduced the country’s decorative arts and architecture to the United States. His unique minimal style heralded the Swedish modern movement.

His Lovö chairs showcase his design tenets during his time as chief architect and designer for the Nordiska Kompaniet department store in the 1930s. They have a raw rusticity that exemplifies handicraft at its most minimal. The solid stained Swedish pine is allowed to express itself clearly, and the structural elements such as the blackened iron rivets are heralded proudly.

The chairs are in original unrestored condition, with some age-related wear.
