More from the 60’s/70’s Swedish Design exhibition:
Lena Larsson, 1919-2000, Swedish cabinet-maker, interior decorator and designer. In the 1940s she interviewed housewives about how they used their homes. She pushed for furniture to be cheap, practical, light, easy to use, and easy to dispose of when needs changed, rather than of long lasting quality. This was the general philosophy in the 1960s: “slit och släng” ~ “wear and tear”.
