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.
Grorudstolen is designed by Hans Brattrud (1933 - 2017) and released September 1958 during a home and interior exhibition in Oslo. The chair is named after a suburb area in Oslo, Grorud, where it was manufactured at A. Grasaasen’s Factory. Today the chair is being manufactured in Sykkylven in Norway.
