Otto Schulz for Boet, pair of easy chairs, fabric, ash, Sweden, 1940s

These armchairs, designed by the illustrious Swedish designer Otto Schulz and produced by Boet in the 1940s, are exemplary of Swedish elegance. Their proportions, refined curvature, and high-quality materials culminate in a design that exudes sophistication and grace. The backrest, with its crescent shape and spiral piping, resembles the appearance of a shell. This design element imparts an inviting aesthetic to the piece, subtly echoing organic forms. The differently designed feet are characteristic of Schulz's designs; the front legs are conical, while the rear legs are tapered and rectangular. The upholstery features a decorative pattern of flora and fauna in complementary autumnal colors—brown, yellow, red, orange, and hints of blue. The seat is substantial, and the construction robust, ensuring maximum comfort without compromising on elegance. These chairs are a splendid addition to any interior, combining historical significance with timeless style.

Otto Schulz (1882-1970) was a German designer and architect schooled at the Technical University in Berlin-Charlottenberg and the Architectural School in Berlin amongst others. The majority of his career was however spent in Sweden. He worked as a draftsman and interior designer for several years after his arrival in Sweden. In 1920, he founded Boet together with Adolf Nordic Borg, the head of Nordiska Kompaniet's design offices, a company that came to be a well-established interior design shop that also published a magazine under the same name. Schulz design was often so inventive, that he patented some of his techniques such as his characteristic decorative brass nail designs referred to as Bopoint. His design is known for its capability to blend traditional elements and techniques with a modern style.
