Erik Gunnar Asplund (1885 - 1940) is one of Sweden's leading figures in architecture and design. He is a key representative of Swedish Grace -- a brief yet substantial moment that emerged in the 1920’s and came to represent a brilliant mix of classicism and architectural details. Among Asplund's works is the Stockholm Public Library, which is an outstanding example of the Swedish Grace movement. At the famous Paris World Fair in 1925, Asplund's furniture complemented the architecture of the celebrated neo-Greek Swedish Pavilion. Illustrated; Hemmet och den moderna smaken, Nils G. Wollin, p.103.
