O Designer - Carl Edward Matthes
Although information about designer Carl Edward Matthes is scarce, it is known that his projects date from the mid-century and follow the basic aspects of Scandinavian design: functionality, simplicity, and aesthetics. Like the other Scandinavian designers of that time, Matthes used very high quality wood, and had an inclination for teak and beech. Model nº33 is one of his most notable works. The chair is ergonomically shaped and has sculpted wooden arms. Unfortunately, details about the designer’s biography have not survived over the years.
