Visingsö Bord

Visingsö by Carl Malmsten has an eternal and contemporary tone with links to both Swedish allmoge and American Shaker. The table is one among Malmsten’s vast volume of funiture. His archive contains more than 20,000 furniture sketches, drawn in pencil to a scale of 1:10, and more than 12,000 meticulous full scale working drawings. No other Swedish furniture designer has left behind such an impressive diversity. The Visingsö family also included a sofa, armchair, bookshelf, and stools (see here).
