The house is an old school building, a typical, traditional skånelänga.
Ingegerd is perhaps Sweden's most successful contemporary glass designer. My favourite creation of her is probably the Zvizz series for Orrefors. There is just something very intriguing with the semi-transparant surface, and the effect it creates.
...that I would want to own a pair of red-painted Wegner chairs. But these two JH-719, first produced by cabinetmaker Johannes Hansen in 1968, are just striking in their red paint - totally original - with flagline backrest and seat, brass rivets, and canvas cushions. They seem very comfortable too - a feat too often overlooked in design furniture.
In both these pictures one also sees a skyscraper by Backström & Reinius, Hötorgsskrapan nummer 5, back when the facade still had a brownish hue.
Åhléns City (1964), Klarabergsvägen, Stockholm, by Sven Backström & Leif Reinius. Winner of the Kasper Salin prize 1966. 9 floors. 130 metres long, 40 metres wide. Buildt with the largest and most advanced climate control system in Sweden at the time. The influences from USA are obvious - the long wall is without windows. The ceilings are high, and the well lit "hangar"-spaces are made for effective shopping.
No advertisement was deemed needed on the facade - the building would be striking enough.
