Although there are few biographical information about Nils Jonsson, his creations are still present in the vintage furnituremarket. Known for having imagined many teak furniture such as tables or secretaries, Nils Jonsson is now famous among design lovers.
A FEW WORDS ABOUT NILS JONSSON
A bit drowned in the wave of Danish designers of the 50s and 60s, Nils Jonsson seems to have kept a certain anonymity. A contemporary of Arne Jacobsen or Johannes Andersen, he made less sense at the time, his genius masked by the wave of Scandinavian designers of the mid-twentieth century. His works, stamped, are easily recognizable by connoisseurs and arouse enthusiasm among fans of the genre, who snapped his pieces.
THE STYLE OF THE DESIGNER
The style of Nils Jonsson is both unique and perfectly integrated into the genre of Danish furniture of the middle of the 20th century: smooth furniture, curves sometimes straight, sometimes round and sleek. He mainly made teak furniture, including this beautiful secretary with drawers. His furniture was made for the greatest number by the Swedish company Troeds Bjärnum. This one, created in the 30s, designed, at the time, many pieces in a classic Scandinavian style. Nils Jonsson is also very fortunate in his collaboration with another designer, Yngve Ekström, a Swedish, who played an important role in the development of “Scandinavian Modernism”.
Undoubtedly joining the line of the greatest Danish designers of the twentieth century, Nils Jonsson, despite the little information known about him, remains rooted in the history of design and vintage furniture. Some of these pieces are on sale on The Vintage Furniture, your reference in terms of vintage furniture in Paris.
