Synopsis: The sensuously undulant lines of Bruno Mathsson's furniture designs made him one of the leading figures of Swedish modernism in the 1930s. Chairs that adapted to their occupant with graceful natural curves became his trademark and have been in continuous production for more than fifty years. In his less familiar architectural work, Mathsson (1907-1988) applied the same principles of innovative comfortable living. Throughout his work the connections between design and ergonomics, aesthetics and innovative materials, energy saving and environmental concerns resonate for designers today.
This book surveys Mathsson's output as an architect and designer as well as his relationships with American architects and designers including Frank Lloyd-Wright, Charles and Ray Eames, and Hans Knoll. Extensive illustrations include unpublished photographs of his Mathsson’s work in situ.

About the Author: Dag Widman was formerly chief curator of applied arts at the Nationalmuseum, Stockholm. Karin Winter is curator at the Swedish Museum of Architecture. Nina Stritzler-Levine is director of exhibitions at the Bard Graduate Center, New York.

Book Description Yale University Press, 2007. Oversized Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. Bruno Mathsson (1907-1988) was Sweden's most successful modern furniture designer during the 20th century. His light, elegant, bentwood forms possess a timelessclassic quality, but there has actually been little published about his work, especially in architecture, outside a relatively small circle. His greatest challenge was to develop the mechanics of sitting in order to create comfortable seating curves for both resting and working: his 'Eva,' 'Pernilla,' and 'Jetson' chairs and the 'super-ellipse' table are known throughout the international design community. With expansive visual documentation. Addenda. 228p. Bookseller Inventory # 2949024
