Swedese Leather Lamino by Nudie
“To have made one good chair maybe isn’t such a bad lifetime accomplishment” - Swedese Founder, Yngve Ekström
This collaborative effort between Swedese and Nudie Jeans has resulted in one of the most stylish, beautifully made pieces of furniture of our time.
The Lamino chair has been produced by skilled craftsmen in Vaggeryd, Småland, Sweden since 1956, producing more than 300,000 chairs in 70 years. As a 70th Anniversary tribute to the design brand Swedese, Nudie Jeans was asked to create their own interpretation of their famous Lamino chair - and this is their luxurious leather version; upholstered in vegetable tanned leather with their signature orange stripe.
The frame is made of untreated Beech veneer with a few layers of orange colored veneer in-between. The seat comes in a natural leather option, vegetable tanned by Tärnsjö Garveri.
And if that isn’t enough, Nudie Jeans have collaborated with Amnesty International to donate $75+ (50 British Pounds) to the organization with each chair sold.

About The Designer
Swedese is a classic Swedish furniture producer with a strong anchor in both public and domestic domain. Swedese’s ideals are the same today as they have been for the better part of a century: to create beautiful furniture for the future, which builds on the foundation of Scandinavian modern tradition, designed by forward-thinking designers who share in the timeless ideals of architecture.
Swedese was founded in 1945 by two brothers, Yngve and Jerker Ekström, and is headquartered in Småland, Sweden.
Many modernist architects were universal designers with not only a clear understanding of designing buildings, but also their interiors. Swedese’s founder, Yngve Ekström, was no exception. Together with names including Alvar Aalto, Bruno Mathsson, Arne Jacobsen and Poul Kjæholm, Yngve was at the core of a generation of designers who made the “Scandinavian Modern” design concept famous throughout the world. With a keen eye, he designed Swedese’s furniture, the head office building, logo, catalogues and personalized the Christmas cards – he had his hand on every work, and his legend lives on in the Swedese brand.
The most well known design of Yngve Ekström's extensive portfolio is the Lamino armchair from 1956, which is still manufactured and sold all over the world. In 1999 the Lamino was voted the Twentieth Century's Best Swedish Furniture Design by the Swedish interior design magazine Sköna Hem.
