Steel Tube Chair Designed by Sven Markelius for Ds Staal Sweden, 1930s
By Sven Markelius, DS Stålrörsmöbler
Located in Valby, 84
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. Sven Markelius was a big and important part of Swedish functionalism. Sven Markelius was educated from 1909 to 1913 at the Royal Technical University in Stockholm and at the Academy of fine Arts and subsequently went on study trips to Germany and Italy. He then underwent solid training with the architects Ragnar Östberg, Erik Lallerstedt and Ivar Tengbom...

Sven Markelius modernist stacking chairs red and dark brown 1931 rare set of 10
By Bodafors, Sven Markelius, SMF Svenska Möbelfabriken Bodafors
Located in Forest, BE
Set of 10 minimal and elegant lightweight confortable stacking chairs by modernist architect Sven Markelius. Designed and produced for the orchestra of the Helsingborg theater in Sweden in 1931. These are dark brown stained birch with lots of patina. We did not touch anything to preserve the almost 100 years of use. On top of the seats there's a faux red leather nailed with brass nails. Still in good condition with patina and traces of use. Some stains can appear. They stack easily by ten and form a nice sculptural composition. _____________________________________________________________ Sven Markelius né Sven Gottfrid Jonsson le 25 octobre 1889 à Stockholm et mort le 24 février 1972 à Danderyd en Suède, est un architecte suédois dont l'œuvre s'est essentiellement inscrite dans le mouvement fonctionnaliste. Sven Markelius étudie à l'Institut royal de technologie et à l'Académie royale des arts de 1909 à 1913. Il entreprend ensuite un voyage d'étude en Allemagne et en Italie. Il se forme auprès des architectes Ragnar Östberg, Erik Lallerstedt et Ivar Tengbom. Après avoir participé avec succès à plusieurs concours architecturaux, il ouvre son propre cabinet en 1920. En 1921, Sven Jonsson décide de changer son patronyme, en particulier parce que plusieurs de ses collègues architectes s'appellent aussi Jonsson (ou des variantes de ce même nom). Il s'inspire du nom du domaine familial situé en Östergötland, Mark, dont Markelius est une forme latinisée. Ce changement de patronyme ne concerne pas les autres membres de sa famille. En 1927, Markelius entreprend un second voyage d'étude en Allemagne, au cours duquel il rencontre Walter Gropius, représentant de l'école du Bauhaus à Dessau. Les idées de Gropius vont avoir une influence décisive sur Markelius, qui devient l'un des membres prééminents du mouvement fonctionnaliste lorsque celui-ci fait son apparition en Suède à l'occasion de l'exposition de Stockholm de 1930. Lors de cette exposition, Markelius est responsable du département logement en compagnie de Kurt von Schmalensee, Uno Åhrén, Sigurd Lewerentz...

Sven Markelius 'Orchestra' Chairs Black & White

Scandinavian modern, lacquered birch, stackable 'orchestra' chairs, Sven Markelius, Sweden, 1930s. These modernist chairs were especially designed for the Helsingborg Concert Hall. Clean and simple lines make these very early modernist chairs a great and timeless design. These chairs would fit well in a modern day minimalist and zen interior, possibly combined with some brutalist and rustic elements. The Helsingborg Concert Hall was of great importance as the first functionalist monumental building in Sweden. It was designed by Sven Markelius and was finished in 1932. In 1925 a competition was launched and Markelius was invited. He had earlier, in 1918, come up with a proposal for a Concert Hall. Markelius came in third place in this competition after Lars Israel Wahlman...
