Alf Svensson (1929-1992) was an innovator. It was during the 1950s, 60s and 70s that the Swedish designer created some of his most noteworthy pieces. Like many of his Scandinavian peers, Svensson used traditional materials such as teak, rosewood and leather to create furniture in the Scandinavian Modern style – and often together with his contemporary, Yngvar Sandström.

A skilled designer despite being little known to the public, he created several iconic mid-century designs for a number of prominent Nordic brands including Fritz Hansen and DUX. His series of mid-century lamps for the Swedish lighting company Bergbom’s helped to breathe new life into the company, which benefited greatly from his large international network and meticulous approach to his metier.

Today, some of his most prominent lighting designs are available at MENU, under the name Collector – a reference to the enduring relevance and collectability of his works.
