HAPPY BIRTHDAY JETSON

The Jeston swivel chair was designed by Bruno Mathsson for DUX of Sweden in 1969. Celebrate 50 years of this iconic Swedish design, available in the U.S. for the first time ever.

Jetson is an icon of Swedish furniture design. The architect and designer Bruno Mathsson, often described as the father of Swedish Modern design, spent three years working on this futuristic armchair, which takes its name from an American TV series. The result was unveiled at an exhibition at Nordiska Galleriet in Stockholm in 1969, and it was a resounding success. Jetson is a milestone in Bruno Mathsson’s production program and it has had many imitators. A bowl-shaped seat and a high ergonomically-designed back with headrest. A base with a unique memory function, meaning the chair rotates back to its original position. Chrome-plated frame.

The Jetson chair was designed by Bruno Mathsson, a Swedish architect and furniture designer, for DUX.

First developed in 1969, the Jetson has become a classic of modern urban design. Since it was first produced, the Jetson chair has been copied and imitated repeatedly, yet no other chair comes close to Mathsson’s original and pioneering design 

 

Mathsson’s designs are a fusion of traditional Swedish crafts and Modernism. During the 1960s he developed a unique building technique for wooden chairs in which the components were glued and bent under hot water. Mathsson is often described as the father of Swedish Modern design. The Jetson, Karin, and Pernilla chairs are three classics Mathsson designed for DUX.
