Rare Fredrik Schriever-Abeln Pair of "Condor" Armchairs, Sweden 1960s

Sold Sold
  • Description
    Swedish designer, Fredrik Schriever-Abeln’s designs have become quite sought after in the past years. This is in part due to the beloved “Condor” table being misattributed to Illum Wikkelsø until recently.

    This rare armchair design from the Condor family has the same, distinctive “X” shaped wooden sides. This pair - like the famous coffee table - is dominated by the dark, solid wood frames that are sculpted to perfection. The level of woodwork and precise joinery techniques greatly show off the skills of the craftsman, while the balance of the upholstered and wooden parts praise the designer’s vision. The mix of traditional and more modern elements of both the structure and aesthetic shows that these armchairs are from the mature, later part of the mid-century modern era. The arms especially stand out for their upholstered armrests that further distinguish the design from the rest. The textured, light bouclé upholstery complements the smooth and dark surface of the wood by contrast, making for an appealing look.

    While the 1960s saw the takeover of mass production and many - now iconic - futuristic designs, these armchairs preserve the value and beauty of master craftsmanship and exquisite materials.
