Description This rare coffee table was designed by Axel Einar Hjorth in January 1937 and was made to order for the “Spring Show” of the same year for the department store Nordiska Kompaniet in Stockholm Sweden.
There have been some thoughts that the work has also been shown at the Swedish Pavilion at the 1937 Paris Exhibition, but unfortunately very few photos were taken by officials at the time, so this for now will stay an hypothesis.
The table is one of Hjorth’s most slender works and together with his more common utö and lovö series, belongs to the best of his oeuvre.
Label marked NK R 40275 - C 7 6 37.
Styles / Movements Mid Century, Modern, Scandinavian Modern
