Lars Englund studied at the school of Fernand Léger in Paris and had his first exhibition in Stockholm in 1953. During the 1960’s Englund was inspired by the modern materials of the day- plastic, rubber, concrete, and later carbon fiber. In Englund’s art basic shapes such as spheres and circles are put together, forming organic objects and nonfigurative art works. Englund’s works have been shown in exhibitions in Stockholm, Paris, Warsaw, and New York.
As a furniture designer Englund is best known for the stools, made in sheet metal and leather for the company Skelder AB. He has also designed objects for the Swedish furniture design company Källemo.
