About

Dining table in pine, very good condition, Axel Einar Hjorth, Sweden, 1932. The Swedish modernist Axel-Einar Hjorth is best know for his modern reduced design. This Table is one of his masterpieces with beautifully grained Oregon pine with matte finish. Manufactured by Nordiska Kompaniet. Axel Einar Hjorth, Swedish architect and industrial designer. He contributed significantly to the reputation and international breakthrough of Swedish design. Throughout his career he has used a variety of styles. While his designs between 1918 and 1929 were still influenced by neoclassicism, Hjorth later became more and more inspired by French Art Deco and still used the formal language based on Swedish conditions. This is why Hjorth often used fine and expensive materials and combined them with bright colors and textiles. Slender furniture such as tables, cupboards, chairs and sofas are made from woods such as oak, birch and rosewood. In 1927 Hjorth became chief architect and designer of the department store Nordiska Kompaniet (NK) in Stockholm.

About the Designer

Axel Einar Hjorth

Swedish furniture designer Axel Einar Hjorth (1888–1959) created pieces that were as elegant as they were functional, and he frequently worked in references to a litany of inspirations including French Art Deco, Gustavian style and modernism. Ahead of his time, his style was refined and daringly simple.

Born in Krokek, Sweden, Hjorth grew up in a foster family and at 20 moved to Stockholm where he studied architecture and design at the Högre Konstindustriella Skolan (now the University of Arts, Crafts & Design). Although he dropped out when his foster father died, he went on to work for some of the largest furniture manufacturers in Sweden during the 1920s. His work was featured in the 1923 Gothenburg Exhibition world’s fair, and he exhibited a birch and cherry cabinet in the 1927 Swedish Contemporary Decorative Arts at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. His role as the head of the furniture department at Nordiska Kompaniet (NK), an upscale department store in Stockholm, from 1927 to 1938, further brought his designs to widespread acclaim, including pieces exhibited at the 1929 Barcelona International Exposition.

At the 1930 Stockholm Exhibition, an influential event in the emergence of functionalism in Swedish design, Hjorth exhibited a dozen room settings that featured examples of sportstugemöbler. These furniture lines were named for islands in Sweden’s archipelago — Utö, Blidö and Torö — with designs intended for cabins and vacation homes. The use of solid Swedish pine in these pieces revealed a love of traditional rustic furniture while the simple forms boldly looked to the future. He also brought his eclectic influences to armchairs formed from tubular metal, blocky cabinets made from birch and upholstered sofas with neoclassical details, each exuberantly mixing form and function.
