Amanda Christensen AB's interiors of the house Kungsbroplan 1, Stockholm
Erik Glemme (1905 - 1959) was a Swedish architect and landscape architect, mainly active in Stockholm. Together with his colleague Holger Blom, Stockholm's city gardener, Glemme became a leading figure in the so - called Stockholm style, a program in which functionalist architecture was framed through park and landscape planning. Classic suburban areas such as the squares in Vällingby center and Blackeberg and Grynkvarnsparken in Johanneshov were planned by Glemme, as well as Tegnérlunden, Rålambshovsparken and Norr Mälarstrand's promenade. For the parks, Glemme often designed benches, pavilions etc. In addition to working with the city's green public spaces, Glemme had his own architectural office, where he carried out several interior design projects for both private and public clients. The interior of one of Stockholm's city councilors in Stockholm City Hall in the mid-1950s was a popular assignment. His furniture and fixtures have a personal character often characterized by asymmetry, organic shapes and a very high carpentry quality.
The ceiling lamp come from one of Glemme's most important clients, the male fashion company, the tie manufacturer Amanda Christensen AB. The company owned the property Kungsbroplan 1 in Stockholm, where Glemme, as Christensen's architect, decorated and designed both fixed and loose furniture for both offices and the private floor, as well as for the family's summer place. The ceiling lamp comes from the private floor on Kungsbroplan 1.
