Lamino 1956

The Lamino Chair by Swedese was voted the “the 20th Century's Best Swedish Furniture Design” at the turn of the millenium. 

Lamino is a prime example of timeless design. Nature’s own materials and masterful craftsmanship have resulted in a piece of furniture as attractive today as it’ll be for future generations. When Yngve Ekström designed the chair in 1956, he did it with the human being in focus, which makes it as pleasant to sit in as it is to look at.

Lamino in beech or oak is approved by Möbelfakta.

Yngve Ekström

Beautiful, simple, comfortable – and loved. When a Swedish interior magazine asked its readers to vote for “one piece of furniture of the 20th century” they chose the easy chair Lamino, designed by Swe­dese’s founder Yngve Ekström. “To have designed one good chair might not be a bad life’s work” he had said, many years earlier. But his inheritance is far greater than just Lamino. Yngve Ekström had his personal style, which ensures that so much of his furniture retains its current interest and is kept in production.

Ekström was born in 1913 in Småland, where the country’s oldest furniture facto­ry was situated. His father died young and Ekström started working in the factory at the age of 13. His talent for carpentry and his all-round experience gave him a unique feeling for materials and construction.

With colleagues like Aalto, Mathsson, Jacobsen and Kjaerholm, Yngve Ekström was part of the post-war modern movement that made the concept “Scandina­vian Modern” world-famous. His furniture is represented in many permanent collections, including the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.
