LAMINO BY NUDIE JEANS
“To have made one good chair maybe isn’t such a bad lifetime accomplishment”
The quote comes from the creator of the Lamino chair, Yngve Ekström. And claiming that a chair that was voted “the 20th Century’s Best Swedish Furniture Design” by Swedish interior decoration magazine, Sköna Hem’s readers, is only a good chair is an understatement.
The frame is made with untreated beech veneer, with a few layers of orange colored veneer in-between – which of course comes from the orange stitching of Nudie Jeans selvage. The seat comes in three different variations: a dry, organic, Kaihara selvage option, a pre-washed, hand-treated selvage option made by washing experts at ITAC in Italy, and a natural leather option, vegetable tanned by Tärnsjö Garveri.
