Concrete Chair by Swedish designer Jonas Bohlin

Jonas Bohlin started off by making a kind of scandalous success in terms of offended Swedish functionalism at the 1981 graduation show at Konstfack, the National College of Arts, Craft and Design, in Stockholm. “We never quite recoverd from the shock his chair “Concrete” created in the Swedish design community”. Being meant as a piece of sculpture in an artistic installation, the chair of steel and concrete was obviously epitomizing a Swedish idea of post-modernism, why it was produced in a limited edition, and is currently a collector’s item.
