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!
