Rare and important Steel tube side chair designed by Sven Markelius for DS Staal in Sweden in the 1930s, the chair is designed in the 1930s for the EPA Bar in Stockholm. This chair is a good example of how the Bauhaus school inspired many Scandinavian Architects like Sven Markelius, Frits Schlegel, Vilhelm Lauritzen and many others. Literature: Eva Rudberg. 'Sven Markelius Architect', Arkitektur Förlag 1989, pictured p. 90. Ingrid Sommar. 'Stockholm Modern', Wahlström & Widstrand 1998, pictured p. 184. Sven Markelius used a stool in a similar design for the Helsingborg Concert Hall in 1932. In 1936, Markelius was commissioned to transform an old shop in Drottninggatan, Stockholm, into an Epa bar, where this chair was found. Enhets Pris Aktiebolaget (EPA) was presumably satisfied, because Markelius was given other tasks by EPA in the following years. 1937 to Epa-bar, Sweden. Literature: Dan Gordan: the Swedish chair, p. 97 The chair is in a beautiful original condition with patinated natural leather and chromed steel tubes in good condition.

He then underwent solid training with the architects Ragnar Östberg, Erik Lallerstedt and Ivar Tengbom...
