Carl Malmsten for Svensk Fur Set of Four 'Sörgården' Dining Chairs in Solid Pine
Carl Malmsten for Svensk Fur, dining chairs model 'Sörgården', pine, Sweden, 1950s
This set of four dining chairs designed by Malmsten and manufactured by Svensk Fur combines comfort with functional and visual aspects. Not only provides Malmsten's choice of solid pine wood as a material for this design a wonderful warm grain, but it also underlines the well-shaped seat and backrest. The seat shows the connection of the legs as a constructive detail. The backrest features a small gap that can be used as a handle to replace the chair. Overall a well-crafted example of Scandinavian Modern design of the 1950s.
Carl Malmsten (1888-1972), a Swedish architect and designer, gained significant recognition for his contributions to the Swedish Grace style. This design movement emerged during the 1920s, serving as a deliberate response to the opulent and ornate characteristics of the Art Nouveau movement. Central to the Swedish Grace style is simplicity, refined elegance, use of natural materials, functionality, and appreciation for nature and Swedish traditions and craftsmanship.
