Pair of armchairs ‘Eva’ designed by Bruno Mathsson for Karl Mathsson, Swedish

About the Item

Pair of armchairs ‘Eva’ designed by Bruno Mathsson for Karl Mathsson, Sweden, 1964. Leather and birch. Stamped. With its characteristically curved legs and armrests, this iconic chair model "Eva" exemplifies Swedish functionalism. The comfortable seat is composed of beautifully patinated plaited leather straps in cognac — "Eva" in leather was only introduced in the 1960s. While the design aesthetic is delicate, both chairs are very well-made and sturdy because of the strong plywood. Bruno Mathsson’s love for nature pervades all his designs — he frequently slept outside in the forest or his garden on a specially designed foldable bed. His furniture shapes, particularly the legs, bring bull's horns or insects to mind. Mathsson was one of the most important Swedish designers of the 20th century. He was a contemporary of Alvar Aalto and Marcel Breuer, all of whom had already experimented with bent plywood during the 1930s. H: 84 cm W: 60 cm D: 69 cm SH: 39 cm AH: 60 cm
