The Swedish architect Birger Jonson (1890-1977) with wife Helny Jonson.
Birger and Helny made the order for this cabinet sometimes around 1935-36 when the couple just had moved into Eriksbergsgatan Stockholm in 1935.
Helny was acquainted with Estrid Ericson since back when she was living in Hjo ( where Estrid was brought up as well) and thus they decided to order this cabinet designed by Josef Frank in order to house Birger's clothing. The cabinet is in its original condition.
Birger Jonson is today perhaps best known for being the architect of the Filadelfiakyrkan at St. Eriksplan in Stockholm, built in 1929-30. Other examples are the above mentioned residential buildings on Eriksbergsgatan in Stockholm, the Central Station in Falköping from 1934-35 is another fine example of his modernist architecture.
Jonson was one of the stronger voices advocating modernism and functionalism around the Stockholm Exhibition in 1930.
