THE JETSON Chair
By Bruno Mathsson
FOR DUX, 1969
CELEBRATE 50 YEARS OF THIS ICONIC SWEDISH DESIGN, COMING TO THE U.S.
Created by Bruno Mathsson for DUX in 1969, the Jetson chair is an icon of Swedish furniture design.
As classic as his designs are, is the story of how Bruno sat down in a snowdrift to create the optimal shape for sitting furniture. Mathsson's starting point was always the shape of the body and the interaction between furniture and the human form. As he put it, furniture should be made with such art that sitting in them will not itself become art. After perfecting the Jetson chair over the course of three years, it was finally presented to fanfare in Stockholm in 1969.
The Jetson chair reflects both his obsession with comfort and a classic Swedish modern design approach. It features a bowl-shaped seat, ergonomically designed high back with head pillow, and chrome swivel base with a unique self-return mechanism. The oft-imitated Jetson design was named for the futuristic animated American television family.
And now, in celebration of the 50th anniversary of its original introduction, we are pleased to announce that the Jetson chair will be made available in the United States.
