During the 1940s Sonna Rosén was something unusual as a female interior designer, trained at University of Arts, Crafts and Design (Konstfack) in Stockholm.
The SUNFEATHER was designed in 1948 and was one of the few pieces of furniture that attracted international attention during the post-war design boom. It was awarded the "Good Design" award by the Modern Art Museum MoMa in New York in 1952 and has been part of their collection ever since. The armchair, which has been manufactured by Gemla in Diö since 1993, has become one of the most appreciated classics in the collection.
Today SUNFEATHER is represented in a number of museums and public spaces, such as the National Museum in Stockholm, the Artipelag Art gallery, the sylish Tokyo hotel Nishimuraya, and in thousands of homes and interiors around the world.
