To celebrate the 70th anniversary of Swedish furniture producer Swedese, Nudie Jeans was asked to do an interpretation of their classic Lamino chair. Since 1956, over 300.000 Lamino chairs have been produced by skilled craftsmen at the factory in Vaggeryd, Småland, Sweden. During the collaboration process they realized that Swedese and Nudie Jeans share the same view on sustainability, and that the materials they use work really well together.
For the collab they chose materials that age beautifully. The frame is made with untreated birch veneer, with a few layers of orange colored veneer in between, which is a reference to their orange stitching of their selvage. The seat comes in three different variations: a dry, organic, Kaihara selvage option, a pre-washed, hand-treated selvage option made by their washing experts at ITAC in Italy, and a natural leather option, vegetable tanned by Tärnsjö Garveri. They made a classic denim chair, very nice!
Stephen Kenn and Simon Miller hooked up together to create this beautiful indigo canvas sofa. They created this master piece as a mutual appreciation for the culture of denim, this collaborative project draws from their love of aged copper and the rich hues found within natural indigo dyed cotton canvas. This sofa is inspired by a pair of jeans. Check the belts at the back of the sofa, really nice!
Yesterday I had a meeting with one of the founders from MAL Furniture, Bob Copray, in their showroom/ office. Check out the nice space! And of course their killer chair MAL1956.
Check out this new MAL Furniture project! Inspired by the classic killer, but this one is weather proof. So now we can also lounge in the garden, super! Good luck in Milano Bob Copray & Niels Wildenberg!

If you are looking for nice vintage furniture you will have to go to Waalwijk in the South of Holland. In an old shoefactory Mathijs from Fabrieknl started some years ago selling the most unique and classic chairs, tables and many more…
One of my all time favourite is the lounge chair from Eames…
