Otto Schulz was an architect and designer born in Germany, who moved to Sweden and founded in Gothenburg what quickly became one of Sweden’s most prestigious interior design shops–-Boet. It operated from 1920-1950. For part of that time Schulz also published an influential design magazine of the same name. A variant of this armchair appears in a 1939 issue of Boet. This profile–the sculptural curves, the gentle recline of the back–is one Schulz typically employed in his armchair designs of the 1930s and 40s.
