Otto Schulz (1882-1970) was a German-born designer and architect who spent a large part of his life in Gothenburg, Sweden. In 1920 he founded the firm “Boet” together with Adolf Nordeberg which grew to be a very influential interior and furniture maker. Schulz had a daring and varied aesthetic which has become important to both the Swedish Grace and Scandinavian Modern movements. In addition to the store, “Boet” was also a journal that Schulz published in accordance with the firm and they would both fortify Schulz’s position in the interior design world. And this chair is the namesake of both the firm and journal.
