spot the monkey

Wednesday, 9 February 2011

The architect Yngve Ekström is a superb representative for light, Scandinavian design and a significant contributor to the definition of  'Scandinavian Modern'.  Ekström's breakthrough came in 1956 with the 'Lamino' easy chair, in which he combined austerity with lightness, beauty with function.  The owner of the apartment below must certainly be a Ekström fan, as we spotted both a Lamino chair upholstered in a comforting grey sheepskin and a black Arka chair with horseshoe backrest.

Did you spot Kay Bojensen's teak monkey?
