kallemo at stockholm furniture fair 2012

‘hommage á sigurd lewerentz’ by mats theselius 

swedish furniture manufacturer kallemo has shown their 2012 collection at the stockholm furniture fair 2012. ranging from larger pieces to accessories, the series features limited edition items.

set inside an ebony armrest and held up by a coppered steelframe, designer mats theselius has created a limited edition easychair known as ‘hommage á sigurd lewerentz’. during a visit by theselius to the petri chruch in klippan by late architect sigurd lewerentz, they happened to be replacing the old copper roof. it is with these recovered parts that the outside of the chair is formed.

‘the chair is very ‘non upholstered’. it consists of many independent parts not very much relating to each other, but together they form the chair. this is also how I experience the architecture. to the chair there is also a special designed and jacquard woven textile related to the mosaic floor pattern like an alter cloth. the chair is made in a limited edition of 123 pieces. this is how many copperplates we recovered.‘ -mats theselius
