Furniture designed by Michael Young, James Irvine and MÃ¥rten Claesson, among many others, for Swedish manufacturer Swedese’s latest collection went on show last week at the Stockholm Furniture Fair in Sweden. Young’s Lemonade chair on a reversed steel frame sat alongside Irvine’s folding X-tables and stackable Sonia birch chair and armchair set and Claesson’s cloud sofa and easy chair. The collection was co-ordinated by Claesson. Swedese was founded by Yngve EkstrÃ¶m in 1945 who, together with high-profile designers including Arne Jacobsen and Alvar Aalto, made the concept of Scandinavian Modern famous worldwide.
