Description This set of two chairs referred to as “Relax II” and a footstool, is true to its name, providing great comfort with an adjustable seat function and original upholstery.

In the 1970s, Swedish design still regarded functionality as its top priority, and models from this period, such as this set, reflect this mentality. From the beautiful, original leather upholstery to the adjustability of the seat and the footstool, relaxation is in the focus. The chairs can be adjusted to a horizontal position.

Swedish designers still remained closely tied to their clean-lined philosophies in the 1960s and 1970s, which is reflected in the stained beechwood frames with their flowing lines. The seats, backrests, and armrests feature olive green leather upholstery with tufting on the backrests. In a similar manner, the stool is also upholstered to match the pair of chairs. The metal frame is partially visible in the back and the bottom, providing a modern touch.

Original leather upholstery. The stool’s color slightly differs from the chairs’.

About the designer:
The set was manufactured by the Swedish company Göte Möbler (G-Möbler), and has the mark on the bottom. Göte Möbler in Nassjö (a subsidiary company of Eldon AB) was among the major companies of Scandinavia during the 1970s and 1980s. The company’s chairs from the 1970s mainly swivel chairs, which makes this set a rather rare representation of Swedish design of that era. ~H.
