About the designer:
Functional elegance. Bror Boije is part of Swedish furniture history. His breakthrough came in the 1970s with his tubular steel armchair Wing. Since then he has designed furniture that has attracted a good deal of attention, some for international furniture producers and many for Swedese, of which some have become collectors’ items that are sold at auctions.
As an opponent of decoration and a supporter of usefulness, Boije’s designs are about elucidating rather than accentuating. The result is functional, yet simultaneously elegant. Boije comes from the generation who were educated during the Red years, the era of 68, when we spoke of “us” and not “I”. Similar to many of his generation his guiding light has been the Bauhaus school.
Bror Boije was born in 1942 in Gothenburg. During the early sixties he worked at Volvo’s design department. He soon worked as both a furniture designer and an interior decorator for the H&M shops amongst others and Sweden’s National Bank. More recently he has received a lot of attention for his catamaran-like house. Since 1970 he has received very many prizes and accolades.
