More information

Caroline Schlyter designed the "little h" chair in 1989. A total of 30 examples were made, the first 20 are signed and numbered.

The chair is made of a single piece of birch plywood. Schlyter's goal was to create a clean, unbroken line and avoid joints and connecting details.
In 1992, Schlyter was awarded the award Utmärkt Svensk Form (Excellent Swedish Form) for Little h.
Her work is in several significant collections, including the National Museum, Stockholm, Sweden; Vitra Design Museum, Weil am Rhein, Germany; Design Museum, London, UK; and the V&A Museum of Childhood Victoria and Albert Museum, London, UK.
