Mathsson Bruno

Bruno Mathsson, son of a carpenter, was a Swedish furniture designer and architect with ideas colored by functionalism/modernism, as well as old Swedish crafts tradition. After a short education in school, he started to work with his father. He quickly found a great interest in furniture and especially chairs. He developed a special building technique for wooden chairs where the components were bent and glued under the action of hot water. He also designed houses with frameworks of glass and steel.
