Mats Theselius


Mats Theselius is an ingenious design legend. In the late 1970s he studied interior design at Konstfack Stockholm and is responsible for some famous Swedish furniture designs of the 90s. He debuted in 1985 with the Elder Leather Seat, a cylindrical armchair made of elk leather, which evolved into a true design classic. Another iconic product that brought Mats Theselius to prominence is the 1988 vitrine, which contains 25 old copies of National Geographic magazines and is painted in the same yellow colour as the magazine cover. His creations are truly unique and artistic, full of aesthetics, style and extravagance. To this day, Theselius is active in many areas and does not put itself in any drawer: moving freely between art and design furniture, lighting, object design, exhibitions, installations, set designs and even music, films and books. The attempt to assign his creations to an epoch is doomed to failure. His furniture is simply different, timeless and special. A variety of awards and prizes stand for recognition of his work, including the Red Dot Award (1996), the Bruno Mathsson Award (1997) and the Wallpaper Design Award (2011). For the Scandinavian manufacturer String Mats Theselius designed a special edition of the String Pocket to mark the 70th anniversary of the brand.
