Eclectic selection of chairs from the collection BLÅ – A Life Estate
Chairs that speak their own language
– Part of BLÅ – A Life Estate October 4th
Blå is an eclectic collection that Bo and Lars-Åke have built and shaped according to their personal tastes. The collection includes an interesting assortment of seating pieces demonstrating the couple's wonderful sense of form and design. Designing an innovative chair is perhaps the most difficult undertaking a designer can take on. Chairs are something personal and show a part of you as the owner. You can look at the chair as a close friend or pet with four legs always by your side. This selection of the collection’s seating demonstrates an idiosyncratic and innovative design, technology, or choice of materials. An eclectic and carefully balanced collection that so well reflects BLÅ and Bo and Lars-Åke’s curiosity and good taste
The most prominent examples in the collection are designed by Alexander Lervik, Tom Dixon, Jonas Bohlin, Frank Gehry, Mats Theselius, Lars Englund, and Paolo Deganello.
