Nordic style strikes again with the Oak concept

Swedish designer Johan Lindstén introduces the Oak Concept collection that he has exhibited as part of the Designersblock event during the Salone del Mobile show in Milan.

From Johan the designer...

'The Oak Concept took off from a series question I asked myself. Like, why does it not exist any good-looking lamps in wood (according to me)? Is it possible to produce lamps in wood? What is my interpretation of an honest modern high quality chair in wood?

The answers led to:. A cocky modern wooden chair with the stroking blessing of a craftsman. The poor floor lamp in oak who continuously fighting against the gravity of the moon, and the thinnest led lamp in oak ever made.'

The nordic types always seem to hit the mark with simple stylish furniture...must be the weather keeping them in studying, or the price of beer?
