Gilbert Marklund "Jonte" Stools for Furusnickaren AB, Sweden 1970s

$ 3,753
  • Description
    Designed in 1969, these so-called “Jonte” pine stools are the Swedish designer’s signature models. The design is brilliant in its simplicity, merging traditional Swedish craftsmanship with the strong influences of the modernist movement that swept through Scandinavia in the previous decades.

    Swedish furniture and interior design culture went through dramatic changes during the 1970s. The effects of the late 60s rebellious view of design, production, and consumption had an impact in the form of freer furnishings and resource-efficient furniture in simpler materials, seen in these stools as well. As such, these well-formed stools are dominated by their solid pine constructions that are immediately recognizable. It is the overreaching sides and distinctively shaped, split seats that create this look. The top of the sides reach over the seat that is quite unusual for stools in general. In a perfectly symmetrical arrangement, the widening legs are connected solely by the seats and the horizontal parts on which they sit. The ergonomic seats have an interesting shape that is split in the middle, showcasing the stretcher just under them that has a similarly carved shape. This design feature demonstrates how much thought went into the design, and attention to the woodworking.

    Executed entirely in solid pine, the structure’s versatile shapes and forms really stand out. The concave seat breaks the rigour of the design and adds much flair. The craftsmanship of Gilbert Marklund, and his own firm, Furusnickaren AB (literally ‘the pine carpenter’) is evident in the joinery technique, as these stools have no visible joints at all.
