It's always exciting to look back at the furniture archives of a leading designer. Here at Stolab, we have long admired Yngve Ekström's attractive Windsor chair Pinnockio. A chair which formed part of our range in the 50s and 60s. When Stolab celebrated its 110th anniversary, we thought this was to be the ideal occasion to feature this pretty Windsor chair as a tribute to one of the greats of Swedish furniture design from us in the "Windsor chair factory" in Smålandsstenar.
Pinnockio is made of solid birch and has stable legs which have been screwed into the seat. The pretty look is accentuated by the seven spindles in the back, which narrow as they converge towards the solid wood top piece. A Windsor chair whose design makes it suitable for a wide range of table types.
