GUNNAR ASPLUND BY BLOND
Erik Gunnar Asplund (1885 - 1940) has been the key influence in creating what we today consider as Scandinavian architecture and design.
Being considered as one of the most important architects of the 20th-century, his active period extends from ca 1910 - 1940. With works that extends from national romanticism via neo-classicism to functionalism.
With a holistic perspective his architecture resembles that of a Gesamtkunstwerk - a common denominator in his works is the care for details as part of the big picture.
1913 Gunnar Asplund won a competition regarding an expansion of the Gothenburg City Hall, a project in which he was involved with for nearly 25 years due to redesigns.
During the 21st-century, BLOND BELYSNING was asked to be a part of the restauration of the Asplund-expansion, whereupon luminaires designed by Gunnar Asplund was restored.
This was the start of an ongoing project to revive and care for the designs of possibly the most important architect in Scandinavian history.
For future generations to discover.
