      Nordic Light Scandinavian 20th-century lighting Summer 2014 Jacksons is pleased to announce our new exhibition "Nordic Light". Stark seasonal contrasts in combination with a scarcity of natural light in the Nordic countries created a unique atmosphere for developing some of the most innovative lamp design of the 20th-century. Obsessed with the ethereal quality of the summer night and its seductive power so distinct to the North, Nordic painters in the late nineteenth-century were on a quest to carve out a geographic identity at the far reaches of Europe. By the 1920s, early masters of modern architecture began to explore a vision of reality similar to their plein-air predecessors. Elaborating on ideas concerning translucence and reflection, these architects and designers controlled and utilized natural light as an animated resource in a way that reinforced an intimate contact with nature. One of the many designers featured in the exhibition is Poul Henningsen, arguably the world's first lighting architect. Also featured are iconic designs by Alvar Aalto, Gunnar Asplund, Ilmari Tapiovaara, Pavo Tynell, Tapio Wirkkala, Greta Magnusson Grossman, and Yrjo Kukkapuro.

      Ola Kolehmainen and Paul Jackson in collaboration with Artek
 From March 14 - April 26, 2014, Jacksons is pleased to announce "Encounters with Aalto", an exhibition that celebrates the living legacy of Finnish architect and designer Alvar Aalto. In the exhibition, three different historical layers merge to elaborate on Aalto’s principles concerning transparency, translucence, and reflection. The first layer is a rare and early selection of original Aalto furniture from Jacksons, which includes some of his most emotive uses of bent wood. They exude a sculptural simplicity that reveal their character and charm after having “lived” through the decades. Accenting the Jacksons pieces are several series of new Pendant Lamps A110, designed in 1952 and still produced by Artek—the company Aalto had founded in 1935. Today, Artek is renowned for its innovative contributions to modern design by building on the heritage of Aalto. The third layer consists of three large-scale abstract photographic works by contemporary artist Ola Kolehmainen. Two of the works–Library 2 and Villa 1–activate the Alvar Aalto archives by abstracting original material.

      From September 2013, Jacksons is pleased to announce an exhibition featuring the work of Danish furniture architect Poul Kjaerholm. Kjaerholm began his career at the height of Danish Modern's "golden years", and was the final major figure to emerge from the Danish furniture tradition. He developed an artistic ideology early on that he would be faithful to throughout his lifetime. Kjaerholm was one of the Scandinavian designers most influenced by the functionalist principles found in other international Modernist Movements, yet his approach was humanized by a traditional Scandinavian sensibility. Unlike many of his contemporaries, Kjaerholm adopted steel rather than wood as his material of choice. After a series of experiments with molded materials, he began to treat his steel constructions with the delicacy and care found in traditional wood cabinetmaking. In fact, he considered steel to have an equal artistic merit with that of other natural materials. Kjaerholm dressed his matte, chrome-plated steel frames--which resembled the surface of waxed wood--with rich, deliberately unfinished canvas, leather, and woven rattan--materials that became more beautiful with age.

      Hall 1 Sued, G37, Messe Basel, Switzerland. For Design Miami/ Basel 2013, Jacksons celebrates the career of Finnish architect and designer Alvar Aalto, focusing on one of his greatest architectural achievements--The Paimio Sanatorium. As a prominent figure in the revival of "Organic Architecture", Aalto's work began in the 1920s with a more natural approach to functionalism. He invigorated European modernism with a humanistic touch rooted in nature, tradition, and intuition. Jacksons has partnered with Gonzalez Haase AAS to recreate an abstracted version of a patient's room at the Paimio Sanatorium. The booth also features a selection of original glass, lighting, and furniture that Aalto had designed during his prolific career. The Paimio Sanatorium, officially inaugurated in June 1933, had been the ideal opportunity for Aalto to execute his philosophy of Gesamtkunstwerk. He was commissioned to design not only the building, but virtually everything inside including lighting, sinks, bathroom shelves, and door handles. The artistic concept and realization of the Jacksons booth would not be possible without the creative inspiration and support of Lee Mindel of Shelton Mindel & Associates, a true mentor of Scandinavian Architecture and Design.

      From March-July 2013, Jacksons is pleased to announce The Cabinet Maker, an exhibition that takes a unique approach to the history of the cabinetmaking tradition in both Denmark and Sweden, and traces the formidable relationships that bonded cabinetmaker and architect during the height of the twentieth century. Under Klint's leadership at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in partnership with the Danish Cabinet Makers' Guild, annual exhibitions were initiated in 1927 that fostered new relationships between architects and cabinetmakers, creating a number of lasting partnerships--most notably Kaare Klint and Rud. Rasmussen, Ole Wanscher and A.J. Iversen, Hans J. Wegner and Johannes Hansen, and Finn Juhl and Niels Vodder. The exhibition focuses on these very cabinet makers who contributed an unparalleled knowledge of craft and quality to the work, yet are oftentimes overshadowed by their collaborators.

      ALVAR AALTO JACKSONS BERLIN SEPTEMBER-FEBRUARY 2013 "Beauty is the harmony of purpose and form" Alvar Aalto 1928 Jacksons is pleased to exhibit a unique selection of furniture, lamps, and glass works from the Finnish Architect and Designer Alvar Aalto. Aalto was a prominent figure in the revival of "Organic Architecture", although his work began in the early 1930's with his more natural approach to functionalism, exemplified by his use of laminate bentwood and fluid lines. Known as "Human Modernism", Alvar Aalto’s dialogue with nature, architecture, design, and the human being has become a living legacy.

      IN ORDER OF APPEARANCE 20th century chair design Opening March 9th Exhibition March 10 - July 23, 2012 Armchair, Cantilever Chair, Fold Up Chair, Folding Chair, Rocking Chair, Swivel Chair. No piece of furniture comes in such diverse forms as the chair. The exhibition plays with tensions of oppositions by using groups or pairings of innovative forms from scandinavian and international 20th century furniture design. It shows important design classics, technical innovations, unique pieces, prototypes and rare examples that help shed light on the evolution of 20th century chair design. The analytic contemplation of form, proportion, color, and material allow relations between the furniture to reveal new information about the different artistic approaches and motivations.

It was one of the first important commissions given to the Wiener Werkstätte, a collaborative founded in 1903 by Josef Hoffmann and Koloman Moser espousing many of the English Arts and Crafts movement's tenets of good design and high-quality craftsmanship.

      X# 7150 Poul Kjaerholm "Holscher Chair", 1952 Material: Steel, flag line Whereas the majority of Danish cabinetmakers excelled in wood, Poul Kjærholm focused on steel and leather as his preferred materials and, with his minimalist styling, he is a distinguished Danish representative of international modernism. The supple “Holscher” chair is very rare, because the chair was only made for Poul Kjærholm’s personal friends and family members. The approx. 20 “Holscher” chairs in the world are wound with flag line, some by Poul Kjærholm himself and his wife Hanne. # 5638 Charles & Ray Eames Shell Chair, 1950-53 Material: Laminated resin, metal Plastic armchairs were first presented as part of a New York Museum of Art competition, "Low Cost Furniture Design". Their organically shaped plastic seat shells were later combined with various different bases and manufactured in their millions. # 5969 Poul Kjaerholm PK 22, 1950 Material: Leather, steel This very early version of the discrete and elegant lounge chair PK22 epitomizes the work of Poul Kjærholm and his search for the ideal typeform and industrial dimension, which was always present in his work. The profile of the steel frame structure originates from the “Element” Chair (PK25). On the PK22, the structure was divided into separate elements due to design improvements and for economical production.

He solved this by designing a chair which can be hung on the wall. Wegner made his solution with his usual assurance, and has brought all parts into perfect interplay. The Folding Chair is an unfailing mobile solution, providing for a place for the hands and that the chairs also looks good when folded.

He got very excited by the structure of the chair, where the seat/back leg element is pushed through the back rest/front leg part, thereby locking in to the solid robust seat. Tapiovaara designed numerous versions based on the same theme, both from tubular steel, as well as wood.

Made from a single piece of cantilevered plastic with no back legs, it was the first of its kind. # 5409 Gio Ponti Supperleggera Chair no.699, 1957 Material: Ash, woven rush Determined to design a light, compact, inexpensive chair, Ponti reduced the weight to 1.7kg by using triangular-shaped legs and struts rather than the usual round ones. Finely balanced as well as light, the Superleggera 699 can be lifted up with just one finger. It has been manufactured by Cassina since 1957. # 1968 Hans Wegner „The Chair“ Chair, 1949 Material: Oak, cane Wegners international breakthrough and greatest sales success came in 1949 when he designed the Round chair. The American magazine Interiors featured the chair on the cover and referred to it as “the world’s most beautiful chair”. The chair rose to stardom when used in the televised presidential debates between Nixon and Kennedy in 1960 and has since been known simply as “The Chair”. # 2316 Nanna Ditzel Chair no.113, 1955, Material: Frame in oak, seat in cane As with most of Ditzel‘s designs, this pieces shape is based on a circle. The deep circular backrest forms the basis of the design and is constructed from steam bent laminated oak. Its shape is contrasted by the square tapered legs which are made from solid oak.

Kokke always uses construction techniques that enable him to give his design greatly pared-down forms, extreme lightness and elegance, while remaining strong yet lightweight and practical to use. In addition to this chair, there is aan armchair, a stool and a low and a high lounge chair.

      X# 7446 Gerrit Rietveld Zig Zag Chairs, 1932-1934 Material: Oak, brass Using only four elements joined with a system of dovetailing, the Zig Zag chair's visual simplicity belies a relatively complex construction. This 1934 design is an expression of the "De Stijl" movement and is included in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art. Made of natural cherry, Zig Zag can serve as a chair or a side table.

      X# 7386 Hans Wegner Peacock Chair, 1947 Material: Oak, teak, rope seat Despite the chair’s almost postmodern design, it was actually manufactured as far back as 1947 at Johannes Hansen’s Møbelsnedkeri A/S. However, its consciously modern lines are not merely a matter of looks. Rather, the sweeping back motion of its extravagantly-shaped sticks is a feat of ergonomic aesthetics. The flat part of the sticks, which gives it its peacock-like appearance, are placed where the shoulder blades meet the chair’s back. When Finn Juhl first saw this chair he immediately noticed its characteristic back and named it the Peacock Chair - a name which stuck with the chair.

Robert Wilson had adapted and directed the play in 1987 together with the author. Signed Robert Wilson No.22 # 1130 Carl Bergsten Strömsholmen Chair, 1906 Material: Stained beech, original calf leather Influenced by his meeting with Otto Wagner and Josef Hoffmann in Vienna, Carl Bergsten designed this chair for an exhibition in his hometown Norrkoping 1906. The chair became part of the interior at Strömsholmen Restaurant. It is known that the waitresses who worked at the restaurant often stumbled over chairs protruding loop that keeps chair legs. Therefore some of the arcs were sawed off.

Mats Theselius and Jonas Bohlin both born in the mid fifties and based in Stockholm. They emerged from the same spirit of the time, they are both educated at Konstfack, the National College of Arts, Craft and Design, in Stockholm. Almost simultaniously they set a new course for a developement in Swedish furniture making. Their work is represented by exploring the field between art and design.

      URSA MAJOR Scandinavian Modernism From NOVEMBER 2010 Jacksons Berlin Lindenstrasse 34, 10969 Berlin The current show at Jacksons in Berlin focuses on mid century modernist designs. Representing funktionalism and innovation in design and craftmanship. Scandinavian modernism emerged in the 1930s but its growth was interrupted by Europe’s economic decline and World War II, only to reach new highs in the 1950s. and 60s. Scandinavian modernism continues to influence design trends to this day, represented by its combination of functionality and sleek forms. A hundred years have passed since the beginning of the modern movement and our culture still continues to define itself according to it.

      BRUNO MATHSSON Sept 25th - Feb 1th Swedish Designer and Architect. Born in Värnamo 1907, into the sixth generation of master cabinet makers. Bruno was a complete autodidact trained in his fathers, Karl Mathssons, traditional workshop. Through books and periodicals he found a passion for functional modern furniture using hemp webbing and weight bearing materials. Always with nature in mind and with a total devotion to the perfect sitting curve, he created a career from the small town of Värnamo to an international success. The exhibition focuses on early bentwood designs created in the 1930´s and 1940´s. Famous classics such as the iconic Eva and Pernilla Chairs.

      SUOMI Finnish 20th Century Design from Saarinen to Sarpaneva April 30th - October 20th Jacksons Berlin Lindenstrasse 34 Berlin With a bold and independent approach, Finland have managed to acquire a unique position in contemporary architecture and design. Nurturing some of the most important designers of the 20th century. The turbulent history of the young nation in the early 20th century lead to an urge to shape a common language of references, where mythical subjects and symbolism played an expressive role. During the industrial expansion in the 20´s and 30´s Finnish design gained great international recognition and was frequently exhibited abroad. The exhibition will show some very rare pieces by Eliel Saarinen, Alvar Aalto, Tapio Wirkkala and Ilmari Tapiovaara Among others.

      XAlvar Aalto "The Paimio Chair". Bent laminated and solid birch frame. Designed 1931-32.

      One of the most well known Finnish architect and designer of this time is Alvar Aalto. Aalto recognised the potential of the natural materials and the beauty of the organic abstract forms. His empathy for nature and the human spirit, became the leading foundation for Scandinavian design.

      FINN JUHL Feb 5th - April 26th 2010 Danish Designer and Architect. Born in 1912 in Frederiksberg, Copenhagen. As a furniture designer he came to play an important role in the development of Danish design in the 1940s. He broke with the established furniture tradition of strictly funktionalistic values and together with cabinet maker Niels Vodder he produced a series of furniture that came to redefine the ‘Danish Design’ concept. For his furnitures he were awarded five gold medals and won international acclaim at the Milan Triennals. Together with Arne Jacobsen and Poul Kjærholm, Finn Juhl paved the way for the launch of Danish design abroad under the title ‘Danish Modern’, and the subsequent export boom through the 1960s up to the present day.  The exhibition focuses on the earlier designs. Showing one of the most important works by Finn Juhl the NV 44 made by Niels Vodder in 1944 for the Cabinetmaker´s Guild Exhibition. Also NV 45 and the famous Chieftan Chair.

    • /media/exhibit/franknotext2_jpg_1024x700_crop_detail_upscale_q80.jpg

      Josef Frank – Swedish Modern Aug-Oct 2008 In collaboration with the Swedish Embassy in Berlin. Josef Frank 1885-1967. Austrian Architect, designer and theorist. Educated in Vienna just after the turn of the century. Known as one of the leading modernists of the 1920s. But also for his criticism of 1930s modern architecture. He dismissed uniformity, insisting that it was pluralism that most characterised life in the new machine age. Josef Frank called for a more humane modernism one that responds to peoples everyday need and left room for sentimentality and historical influences. It was this basic set of ideas that Frank brought with him to Stockholm in 1933. His decision to seek exile in Sweden from the rising threats of fascism were prompted in part by an offer from Estrid Ericson, owner of the furnishings firm Svenskt Tenn. At her company he came to work as chief designer for more than thirty years.

    • /media/exhibit/Josef_Frank_till_hemsidan_bild2_jpg_1024x700_crop_detail_upscale_q80.jpg

      At Svenskt Tenn he was able to put his ideas to practice. Frank continued to advocate his belief in an aesthetic that could appeal to both the mind and the senses. Frank’s own version of Swedish Modern suggested a very different course for mid-20th-century design—away from regularity and the dictates of functionalism. Convinced that all design must serve those who use it, Frank helped to set a different course for Modernism, one that was genuinely affective and appealing.
