Widemar

The elegant armchair with crossed back slats and the armrest in a long undulating line was designed by Carl Malmsten for the lawyer and politician Ingrid Gärde Widemar, who in 1968 became the first female to be appointed Justice of the Supreme Court of Sweden. The chair was never put in serial production, and has now been developed by analysing and weighing together the original drawing and the original chair to form a whole of the highest quality.. “On our work drawings we normally specify that all edges are thoroughly broken”, wrote Carl Malmsten. “Neither the light, the eye, nor the person likes to bump into sharp corners.” This care certainly applies to a chair such as Widemar.
