Made in Sweden H064

Bukowskis presents the Live auction "Made in Sweden" and the great Swedish collection Torbjörn Lenskog Collection. The sale will take place in September 2022 and include selected objects that symbolize Sweden's extended tradition within design, art, sports, fashion and music.

Although Sweden is a small country, it has made an impression in many different areas, and icons like IKEA, ABBA, Roxette, Swedish Grace, Ingmar Bergman, Alfred Nobel and Björn Borg are well-known characters and concepts worldwide.

But the influence has been a two-way street, and several of our most beloved icons like Carl Larsson, Anders Zorn, and the Matisse students are just examples of artists who were avant-garde in their time and who, after their stays in different places abroad, paved the way for new art directions in the home country.

The internationally renowned World Fairs promoted industrial and economic development, where all the countries could come together to present their latest inventions, designs and architecture. Sweden's tradition of entrepreneurship and innovation has attracted attention at several of these important world fairs, such as the Paris World Fair in 1925 and the New York World Fair in 1939.

More disciplines have attracted international attention in recent years, like Swedish music and fashion. Bukowskis wants to highlight and praise everything that contributes to the greatness of Sweden with the auction Made in Sweden.

The sale also includes a significant Swedish collection from the now deceased Torbjörn Lenskog. The collection consists of several Swedish design classics from the Swedish golden age by, among others, Axel Larsson, Bruno Mathsson and Eskil Sundahl.
