Jetson Classic Armchair, 1969

Jetson is an icon of Swedish furniture design. Bruno Mathsson spent three years working on this futuristic armchair, which takes its name from an American TV series. Unveiled in 1969 at an exhibition at Nordiska Galleriet in Stockholm, it was a resounding success.

Jetson is a milestone in Bruno Mathsson’s production program, and it has had many imitators. A bowl-shaped seat and a high ergonomically-designed back with headrest. A base with a unique memory function, the chair rotates back to its original position—a chrome-plated frame.

“Comfortable seating is an art, but it shouldn’t be. Making furniture to sit on should be produced with such fine art that sitting in them doesn’t need to be an art.”
Bruno Matthson.
