SPRING EXHIBITION 2011

In our new spring exhibition we will be showing some important pieces from our collection such as a pair of early PK22, a rare Hans van der Laan bench from the meditation room in Vaals, and a beautiful pair of Wegner wicker chairs, among others.

And we are most proud to show some very special objects, a sofa and a chair by Mats Theselius and the "sto" chair from Jonas Bohlin. Mats Theselius and Jonas Bohlin, both born in the mid-fifties, are based in Stockholm. As contemporaries, they are both educated at Konstfack, the National College of Arts, Craft and Design, in Stockholm. Almost simultaneously they set a new course for developments in Swedish furniture making. Their work is represented by exploring the field between art and design.
