Nudie Jeans X Lamino Chair Collaboration

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!

Natural Indigo Sofa Collab by Stephen Kenn X Simon Miller

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!

FabriekNL Waalwijk

Yesterday I went to Waalwijk, a small village in Holland famous of the shoe industry, to visit the super shop FabriekNL from Mathijs. It’s always feeling like a little boy in a candy shop when you visit him. More than 5.000 square meters of the most incredible cool vintage furniture. If you are looking for some rare pieces, he’s the man!

It was nice to see you again Mathijs! Keep in touch.
