Tallum

Vi finns i monter C04:20

Tallum was founded in 2018 by architects Johannes Norlander and Kim Lidman with the aim to reinvigorate objects made by some of the most prominent Scandinavian modernists. In Sweden, we have a rich history of architects designing furniture, a tradition that has unfortunately been neglected over time. Today we seldom see architects designing the interiors of their buildings due to commercial aspects, procurements, or lack of knowledge. Tallum is a contemporary commentary on this with the aim to elevate some of the most interesting works done in the 20th century.

All our furniture is manufactured in Sweden. The main suppliers are situated in the Småland region, in the southern part of the country. The assembly, adjustment and shipping take place at our workshop in Slakthusområdet, just outside Stockholm. We collaborate with suppliers that can guarantee high quality and are dedicated to craftsmanship, recognizing the value of originality. As the furniture designs originate from an era with different production techniques and standards than those of today, we invest in reviving lost knowledge and methods to ensure the authenticity of our products.

Tallum is the official producer of furniture designed by Sigurd Lewerentz, Gunnar Asplund and Bernt Nyberg. We have the exclusive right to manufacture and distribute these products worldwide. All our furniture is licensed and certified by the families of the architects. Their engagement is a prerequisite for us and a guarantee of authenticity. Without the participation and trust from the families, Tallum would not have existed.

  • Töreboda Collection

    Töreboda Collection Töreboda – A glulam collection originally designed in 1974 by
    Sigurd Lewerentz

    This collection is the Swedish architect Sigurd Lewerentz’s last work, completed merely a year before his death in 1975. Although intended for serial production, only a handful of copies were initially made. The design of the chair emerged from a mock-up Lewerentz developed some ten years earlier, for testing out the ergonomics of his brick benches in the St. Peter’s Church in Klippan.

    Lewerentz’s collaboration with the producer, the glulam manufacturer Töreboda limträ AB, had started at the middle of the century and became intensified during the construction of St. Mark’s Church in Björkhagen. Without the close relationship between the architect and the company, the collection would probably never have seen the light of the day. Important support was also provided by Bernt Nyberg, architect and close partner to Lewerentz during the final phase of his life.

    The original collection was made of varnished glulam (pine) and painted steel (tomato red). Tallum provides the original version, and a version made in electroplated steel. Länk till produkten »

  • Stockholm Chairs

    Stockholm Chairs Stockholm – The official garden collection designed for the Stockholm Exhibition in 1930

    This collection was made for the 1930 Stockholm Exhibition, and it is very likely that Gunnar Asplund, chief architect of the exhibition, was involved in its creation. Many of the exhibition’s events took place outdoors, and special attention was paid to the design of garden furniture, flowerpots, and lamp posts. The chair’s characteristic wide foot, which prevent it from sinking into the gravel, could also be found on the elevated flower beds that divided the central plaza.

    Over three thousand copies of the chair were made for the exhibition. Two different firms were responsible for the production, Borensbergs mekaniska verkstad and Iwan B. Giertz. Even though Asplund oversaw the design of everything, from buildings and graphics to furniture, the provenance of the chairs has never been proved beyond doubt.

    The chairs that were used at the exhibition, without armrests or with armrests and deep seat, were made of treated steel and varnished oak. Tallum will provide a version with galvanized steel frame, solid oak battens, and aluminium rivets. Länk till produkten »

  • Studio Table

    Studio Table Studio Table designed by Bernt Nyberg for his architectural
    office in Lund

    Bernt Nyberg designed this table for his own architectural studio in Lund. It was used as an occasional worktable, and thanks to its low height and caster wheels, it could easily be stored under the drawing table. With its simple construction and graphic appearance, the studio table resembles Nyberg’s more prominent works. The original tables, like the rest of the office fittings, were most probably made by the local suppliers he frequently worked with, Lennartssons trä and Cederqvist & Albertsson.
