Palle Stool

By Stolab


  • Description

    In the Palle stool we recognise Yngve Ekström's design language from the Arka lounge chair and the Pinnockio armchair. Yngve designed this stool during Stolab's 50th anniversary year. A time when fun was combined with classy shapes. Palle is made of solid birch and has a wooden leg that is screwed directly into the seat, making the pallet very stable and useful no matter where in the home you place it. Due to its soft shapes and generous seat, Palle works as an extra seat at the table, perhaps as a bedside table or a reliable "friend" when you need to reach something on the top shelf.

    Yngve Ekström

    Yngve Ekström (1913-1988) was born in Hagafors in Småland, Sweden, which happened to be where the country's oldest furniture industry was placed. He studied drawing, sculpture, painting, music and art history. With furniture virtually from his mother's milk, he started Swedese in 1945 and was leading the company right up until his death. His career coincided in time with the best part of the postwar modern movement and together with names including Alvar Aalto, Bruno Mathsson, Arne Jacobsen and Poul Kjaerholm he was at the core of a generation of designers who made the concept Scandinavian Modern famous all over the world.
    The most well-known design of Yngve Ekström's extensive portfolio is the Lamino armchair from 1956, which is still manufactured and sold all over the world. In 1999 the Lamino was voted the Twentieth Century's Best Swedish Furniture Design by the Swedish interior magazine Sköna Hem.
    Ekström's furniture have been exhibited in Amsterdam, Vienna, Berlin, Paris, Munich and Belgrade, to name a few places, and are represented in many modern permanent collections, including the Victoria & Albert Museum, London and Nationalmuseum, Stockholm.
