Swedish, 1888–1959

Swedish architect and furniture designer Axel Einar Hjorth was greatly inspired by the French Art Deco movement. He often used fine and expensive materials to craft sleek furnishings, such as tables, cabinets, chairs, and sofas in woods such as oak, birch, and rosewood. His designs are characterized by the free play of classical themes, a design ethos later adopted by a younger generation of architects and designers and absorbed into aspects of Modernism in Sweden. Creating designs for a variety of Swedish furniture manufacturers, including the Stockholm department store Nordiska Kompanient, Hjorth contributed to the burgeoning Swedish design culture and the international recognition it began to receive in the 1920s.
