Bruno Mathsson

Bruno Mathsson

Sweden, 1907 - 1988

Bruno Mathsson was a Swedish furniture designer and architect, however, his rational idealist associate, Piet Hein, was neither an architect nor a furniture designer - but a philosopher, poet, and mathematician. Mathsson had ideas coloured by functionalism/modernism, as well as old Swedish crafts tradition, when it comes to design. Being the son of a carpenter in the town of Värnamo; in the South of Sweden, it was fairly obvious what work the young Bruno would choose. After a short time of education in school, he started to work in his father's gallery. He soon found a great interest in furniture and especially chairs - their function and design. Eventually he developed a special building technique for wooden chairs where the components were bent and glued under the action of hot water.
