Lamino by Nudie Jeans: A tribute to sustainable design

To celebrate the 70th anniversary of Swedish furniture producer Swedese, Nudie Jeans were 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 process they realized that Swedese and Nudie Jeans share the same view on sustainability, and that the materials they use work really well together. This is more than a collaboration. It’s a tribute to sustainability, both in terms of design and lifespan. “They share the same passion for natural and raw materials, craftsmanship, and high quality construction and production. Products that are supposed to be used, that age beautifully and develop patina over time. The predilection for functional and sustainable design can maybe be explained by our common roots in Småland, Sweden.” – Maria Erixon, Creative Director at Nudie Jeans 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 of course comes from the 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 our washing experts at ITAC in Italy, and a natural leather option, vegetable tanned by Tärnsjö Garveri. Over the years, Amnesty and Nudie Jeans have collaborated on a bunch of different projects to raise awareness about Amnesty’s work. And for this project, Swedese and Nudie Jeans donate €50 to Amnesty for each chair sold. These special edition chairs will debut at the Stockholm Furniture Fair from February 3 to 7 before hitting select suppliers later this spring Lamino-by-Nudie-Jeans Lamino-by-Nudie-Jeans-Detail Lamino-by-Nudie-Jeans-010 Lamino-by-Nudie-Jeans-009 Lamino-by-Nudie-Jeans-008 Lamino-by-Nudie-Jeans_10 Lamino-by-Nudie-Jeans_9 Lamino-by-Nudie-Jeans_2 Lamino-by-Nudie-Jeans_7 Lamino-by-Nudie-Jeans_6 Lamino-by-Nudie-Jeans_5 Lamino-by-Nudie-Jeans_4 Lamino-by-Nudie-Jeans_3 Images Provided by Nudie Jeans
