By the beginning of the 1960´s, Bruno Mathsson had become interested in the use of steel as a material for furniture. In steel, he saw the possibility to create a new type of light, resilient furniture which combined timeless elegance with good comfort. As with his bent laminated furniture, he strived to minimize the amount of padding used letting the form provide the comfort. In 1965, inspired by the dawning space age, Bruno Mathsson designed an easychair in steel which was launched a year later at an exhibition in Malmö, Sweden. The futuristic looking chair gained the name Jetson. The chair was re-launched in 2005 to the original specification under the name Jetson 66.
