Coffee table made in Norway, late 60s. The counter-top is made of teak; the legs are made of stainless steel with hard plastic clogs.

The minimalist shape, the dialogue between wood and stainless steel, the curved edges, the line of the counter-top, all of this make this table a leading exponent of Scandinavian Modern style.

Pair of Swedish Gemla Mobler chairs. The structure and the armrests - made of curved wood - give a natural, organic and pleasant shape. This is completed in a beautiful way by the wool upholstery, in a shade of green that is specific for the Mid-Century furniture. This chairs can fit any nice interior, having the ability to create a warm atmosphere in the room. The chairs are in very good shape with only few age-related traces.
At Helge River in Diö, in the heart of the old forests of Småland, lies Sweden's oldest furniture factory (founded in 1861). Its inner sanctum, beech and ash are tamed into time- less furniture by skilled craftsmen who know which way the wood likes to bend. Stretching and flexing, easing and teasing, until the steaming hot wood finds its form. And the wood will not be rushed. The transformation from log into chair takes days, sometimes even weeks. The technique has been used by boat and fence builders since ancient times but was refined in the mid 1800's by Thonet into the iconic chair, worn my millions of seats in the cafés of Europe. The shape is determined by the best and the brightest of their time. Back then their names were Peter Celsing, Yngve Ekström, Sigurd Lewerentz and Carl Malmsten. Now they are Jonas Bohlin, Front, Lisa Hilland and Mats Theselius.
Spectacular coffee table made in Germany, in the 1970s. The top of the table - made of Green Alps marble - has a quite impressive diameter (98 cm) and is in perfect shape. It's exquisite color (green with black swirls and veins) is placed in a remarkable dialogue with the coldness and the sobriety of the structure, made of well-polished stainless steel. The legs of the table, resembling the fins of a space-rocket, are consistent with Atomic/Space Age design shapes and lines This is special, stylish, well preserved piece of furniture that can accommodate any contemporary interior, be it minimalist, modern or industrial.
The Space Age is a time period encompassing the activities related to the Space Race, space exploration, space technology, and the cultural developments influenced by these events. The Space Age is generally considered to have begun with Sputnik (1957). During the 1950s, architecture, furniture, interior design, cars, and gadget design took on a curiously spaceflight-inspired aesthetic.
Exquisite nesting tables set consisting of three tables with teak legs and wood veneer top. Made in Norway in the late 1960s, the set is in very good condition and has no visible damages. The legs – with a slightly conical shape – are removable (wood thread). The dimensions and specifications are external and related to the biggest table.
Small coffee table manufactured in the 1970s. The table has a minimalist, elegant and sober design. The yellow top, made of Formica, features a nice geometric design and a nice brass decoration. The flared legs have brass clogs. They are flexible so the table would be stable even if the floor has some irregularities. The piece is in very good vintage condition showing just some small traces of use in one sector of the top (see photo).
Set of 4 "MR" armchairs by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. The armchairs are made of tubular steel and black natural leather and are preserved in a very good shape.
The architect and designer Ludwig Mies van der Rohe is one of the best-known exponents of International Style modernism. His "less-is-more" philosophy has become a catchphrase for much twentieth-century design, though a preference for luxurious and costly materials often underscores the deceptive simplicity of his elegant and refined designs.
Mies van der Rohe was the last director of the Bauhaus design school in Dessau, from 1930 until its closing in 1932. In 1938 he left Germany for America, where he headed the architecture department at the Illinois Institute of Technology.
The graceful, elegant, and beautifully proportioned "MR" armchair, developed from a 1924 design for a cantilevered chair by Mart Stam, was introduced by Mies van der Rohe at the 1927 Stuttgart exhibition and has remained in production ever since. The chair’s cantilevered design uses tubular steel, then a technological novelty, to create an intuitively accessible and ergonomic seat. (When asked why he created chairs with generously sized seats, Mies van der Rohe allegedly replied that he designs chairs he’d be most comfortable sitting in.) The MR Armchair is perfectly balanced, featuring the material innovation and lack of ornamentation that epitomize the International Style. It was awarded the Museum of Modern Art Award in 1977 and the Design Center Stuttgart Award in 1978.
In 1968 the Knoll group took the license to manufacture these chairs but both before 1968 and afterwards many factories have in fact produced these iconic pieces.
