The world found a common belief in social progress, human capacity and technological innovation. A better world was not only possible, but truly within reach, a goal that would be achieved through design and engineering. The seminal moment for the Modern Movement in Sweden was the Stockholm Exhibition in 1930.
The exhibition had great impact on Swedish and Scandinavian design and made way for functionalism.
Twenty-five years later, in 1955, Edvin Ståhl and his company Lammhults Mekaniska Verkstads AB introduced the Pyramid chair, a stackable chair using steel tubing and moulded plywood seat and back. With its functional design and industrial production it was a child of the Modern Movement. It was also a great success.
From our point of view, clarity of design, truth to materials and industrial production are the essence of the Modern Movement – principles we have shared and promoted throughout our history.
For more than 65 years Lammhults has delivered its signature Scandinavian style to public spaces, homes and offices, creating a world of elegant modern interiors. Lammhults products are forward-looking and innovative. With each new product the rich tradition of Lammhults gives new life to the principles of the Modern Movement.
