When Dag Hammarskjöld was Secretary-General of the United Nations, he created “a room of quiet” in the UN building in New York, where people could withdraw in silence. He ordered a fresco by Bo Beskow for the back wall and, apart from a large ironstone rock, the only pieces of furniture were eight stools designed by Carl Malmsten. The stools are still there.
In connection with the 125th anniversary of the designer’s birth in 2013, 125 numbered stools were produced in oiled oak with seaweed stringing.
