The Swedish Society of Industrial Design arranged the Helsingborg Exhibition of 1955, to, in the optimistic spirit of the age, showcase the previous 25 years since the Stockholm Exhibition in 1930. The event acquired the neat nickname of H55. Scandinavia’s designers were extremely well represented, including Alvar Aalto, Stig Lindberg, Yngve Ekström, Finn Juhl and Arne Jacobsen. And Björn Hultén. Björn designed a sun chair – one of the things that we at Skargaarden have always held dear as a source of reference and inspiration. It’s so perfect it’s almost provocative. How so little material can provide so much comfort. How something that speaks with such subtlety can become the focal point for a whole garden.
It’s now 60 years since the H55 exhibition.
