In the 'Antique Manner'

Fredrik Mattson, The Black Chair, 2007
Manufactured by Blå Station in Åhus, Sweden

From the tomb of Tutankaman, to the most fashionable early-19th century homes, to the 1950s designs of T.H. Robsjohn Gibbings... no chair has been more widely reproduced than the klismos. Mattson's designs, available in a variety of colors, reaffirm Sweden's long association with Neoclassicism but give the klismos form a decidedly modern profile.
