Pine 'Lovö' Bookshelf by Axel Einar Hjorth

by Axel Einar Hjorth
Stained Swedish Pine with five shelves and cupboard door with wrought iron strap hinges

Sweden, circa 1932

Designed by Axel Einar Hjorth for Nordiska Kompaniet

Hjorth's Sportstugemöbler collection was intended for Swedish summer houses of his design, displaying a mix of modernism and provisional handicraft espoused by the designer during the 1930s. These (usually unlabelled) pieces were named after Stockholm's archipelago islands, including Blidö, Sandhamn, Toro and Lovö
Hjorth was always happy to combine a range of styles, including the linear compositions of French Art Deco, the solidity and weight of brutalism and the rustic charms of the Arts & Crafts (Svensk Form)
