These artworks were the first decorate the STHLM subways and were completed in 1957. Anders Österlin and Signe Persson-Melin created together “On a base of white standard clinker a series of symbols have been placed playfully running along the train track. They are made out of stoneware.
On the opposite side Erland Melanton and Bengt Edenfalk have created ‘Klaravagnen’ from different colors of glass prisms. ” From the book “En värld under jord. Färg och form i tunnelbanan” (A world beneath the ground. Color and form in the subway.) from 1985 which I bought at a secondhand store for 30SEK years ago.
