Mid-Century Modern Scandinavian Easy Chair by Karl-Erik Ekselius for JOC Vetlanda, 1960s
Delivering from: Warsaw, Poland
This special rare chair was designed by Karl Erik Ekselius for J.O. Carlsson, in Sweden during the 1960s. The club chair has a wooden construction upholstered in cognac-coloured leather. The simple frame was made of solid wood. This model has two loose leather cushions with a natural and beautiful patina.
This piece is in original vintage condition with patina and scrapes. We have a set of three pieces of this model. The other two chairs are listings at separate offers. Together they create a beautiful set.
Swedish furniture designer Karl-Erik Ekselius was born in 1914 in Ålesund, Sweden. He studied carpentry in Germany and at Carl Malmsten’s School for Furniture Studies in Stockholm during the 1930s. Subsequently, he worked for J. O. Carlsson (known later as JOC Möbel AB) in Vetlanda, eventually taking ownership of the company in 1961.
During the famous H55 Exhibition in 1955 in Helsingborg, Ekselius gained international recognition with his designs. Ekselius originated Scandinavian Modern furniture and designed furniture for the Dag Hammarskjöld Library in New York.
