Project Description

While many Swedish designers work with bent wood, Mats Theselius’ is a little more hands-on than most. As a young design graduate, the Gemla designer boiled wood at home in his kitchen to bend it into a prototype of his first aluminium armchair. He says: “The craftsmanship is pretty special. At one point I was worried that Gemla and bent wood wasn’t an option any more, that it wasn’t possible to make and sell furniture crafted out of bent wood in Sweden. That’s why it feels good to … prove the opposite.”
