About this Item

Small (6 1/4" x 5 1/2"), undated booklet issued by the Estonian plywood furniture company Luterma giving specifications for the finishing of profiles. Slightly yellowed green wraps, bound with string and with company's insignia in gilt stamped on the front. In very nice condition, without tears, mars, or marks. The Luterma furniture company was founded in 1883 and by the turn of the century had become the largest plywood and furniture manufacturer in Russia. In the mid 1930s the company promoted a "Furniture for Everyone" initiative supported by the Ministry of Economics, producing flexible modern designs using standardized forms with interchangeable modular units that could be combined in different ways. Later, Luterma's sister company in Great Britain, the Venesta Plywood Company, was involved with the architect Wells Coates in the design of the "minimum flats" at Lawn Road, Hampstead (1932), and the Isokon plywood furniture designed by Walter Gropius and Marcel Breuer. 23 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 73358
