About

This pair of Sibbo easy chairs was designed by Yngve Ekström and produced by Stolab in Sweden, 1955. The design of these chairs is light and timeless. Measures: 53 cm W, 75 cm H and 45 cm D Yngve Ekström (1913-1988) was an architect, woodworker and furniture designer born in Småland, Sweden. At the age of thirteen Ekström began working in the Hagafors Chair Factory. 18 years old he began to pursue a career as a designer first enrolling in drawing, painting, and sculpture courses, and then arts in Gothenburg. Yngve Ekström like Alvar Aalto (1898-1976) Arne Jacobsen (1902-1971) and Poul Kjærholm (1929-1980) played a key role in the development of the midcentury style known as “Scandinavian Modern”.
