Marta Blomstedt 1930s Wing Chair for Hotel Aulanko

About

Marta Blomstedt Hotel Aulanko wing chair, 1939. This iconic wing chair was designed by Finnish architect Marta Blomstedt for the foyer of the Hotel Aulanko in Hameenlinna, Finland. This version of the chair with the spherical, stained elm wood feet is an early production. It was heavily inspired by Danish designer Flemming Lassen's genre-defining 'Tired Man' wing chair from 1935. This example has been reupholstered in New Zealand sheepskin at our workshop in London. Märta Blomstedt (1899–1982) was an architect and one of the driving forces of the Finnish functionalism movement. Partnering with her husband, Pauli E. Blomstedt, her first works were noted for their functional, rather than decorative appearance and settings in park-like environments. After her husband's death, initially she formed a firm with Matti Lampén to complete projects her husband and she had begun. Later, she and Lampén formed a firm designing their own creations. She designed all aspects of her buildings including the furnishings, demonstrated in one of Blomstedt & Lampén's most noted designs of the Hotel Aulanko. During the war, Blomstedt & Lampén mostly worked on renovation and restoration projects of existing buildings, but at the war's end, they returned to their own designs. In addition to buildings, they were responsible for the city plans for Kuusjärvi and the Oravikoski Mining Community and created both public and private buildings in each city as well. When Lampén died, Blomstedt formed a partnership with Olli Penttilä and continued to work into the 1970s.
