Catalogue Note

Swedish architect Curt Blomberg was the son of designer David Blomberg, who founded the furniture department of Swedish department store Nordiska Kompaniet, and designed the iconic ‘NK’ logo seen on the NK clock tower in Stockholm. The present lot displays Curt Blomberg’s ingenuity in materials, choosing to inlay the unusual linoleum into the façade of the cabinet resulting in a very graphic, almost tribal appearance which sharply contrasts with the formalist framework. To our knowledge, this is the only known example to date.
