SWEDESE

MODERN MAGNIFICENCE

Swedese's ideals are the same today as they have been for the past 70 years… to link the brilliance of forward-looking designers and Scandinavian Modern traditions to create beautiful furniture for the future.

The Vaggeryd-based brand was founded by brothers Yngve and Jerker Ekström and Bertil Sjöqvist in 1945. Together with names including Alvar Aalto, Bruno Mathsson, Arne Jacobsen and Poul Kjaerholm, Yngve Ekström was at the core of a generation of designers who made the Scandinavian Modern concept famous all over the world. The most well-known design of his extensive portfolio is the legendary Lamino armchair from 1956.
