Guðjón Samúelsson (1887-1950)
The University chair, 1939-1940
Any yule lad at all would look good in this chair. But today Candle - Beggar is the one who enjoys it.
Guðjón Samúelsson, designed the chair for the University of Iceland. It is very likely that the students that sat in these chairs and took exams in December thought home and looked forward to eating smokled lamb and ris a la mande.
We at the Museum of Design and Applied Art wish you a very happy holidays!
