A pair of two ´´Pernilla´´ easy chairs designed by Bruno Mathsson, manufactured by DUX in Sweden, circa 1970. The chairs have a molded beech frame and are upholstered in leather with canvas, creating a maximum comfort. All together these iconic chairs are in a good vintage condition. Bruno Mathsson (January 13, 1907 – August 17, 1988) was a Swedish furniture designer and architect with ideas colored by functionalism/modernism, as well as old Swedish crafts tradition. Being the son of a carpenter in the town of Va?rnamo in the South of Sweden, it was fairly obvious what work the young Bruno would choose. After a short time of education in school, he started to work in his father´s gallery. He soon found a great interest in furniture and especially chairs their function and design. Eventually he developed a special building technique for wooden chairs where the components were bent and glued under the action of hot water.
