Bruno Mathsson International

A little tense for the meeting with the famous furniture designer I had arrived in good time outside his parents ´home, which also served as a cabinet makers workshop and office, at Tånnögatan in Värnamo. I was expecting to meet a serious and disciplined architect. Exactly on time, a fiery red open top Rover arrived driven by Bruno Mathsson wearing casual sports wear crowned with an elegant leather pilots helmet. It was magnificent entry worthy of a master of the functionalist language.
