Axel Larsson was a Swedish interior architect and a furniture designer born in 1898 Medelpad, Sweden and passed away in 1975 in Sweden. Larsson studied at the Hoegre Konstindustriell Skolan in Sweden and was mentored under the Swedish designer Carl Malmsten during the Stockholm City Hall project.

In 1956, he opened his own firm but continued to collaborate with his former employer, which continues to produce Larsson's stackable Chair S-312 today.
