Futura is another design we are relaunching from Hans Brattrud. The 1960 design has an unique balance between size and its elegance. The combination of square and oval tubes and its buttons in seat and back makes the design as modern today as it was 60 years ago.

Hans Brattrud (1933-2017) educated in furniture design at Norwegian National Academy of Craft and Art Industry in period 1952-1957. He was picked up early by A. Grasaasens Fabrikker to perform furniture for the Oslo-based furniture factory. The first furniture he designed and put into production was Grorudstolen in 1958. In the late 60's he moved home to Dokka and began as an architect. Even with a short ten-year as a designer, Hans Brattrud name is still strong in Norwegian furniture history and most of the furniture that was put into production is still in production today. Products from Hans Brattrud in our collection consist of Grorudstolen and the Futura series.
