Yngve Ekström (1913 – 1988), born in Hagafors, in the region of Småland in southern Sweden, was an architect and internal designer.

Ekström played a fundamental role in the development of the so-called “modern Scandinavian style”.

Among his most famous and successful pieces is the 1956 iconic chair “Lamino” by Swedese (the manufacturing company of his designs co-owned together with his brother), still in production to this everyday. In 1999 the design magazine Sköna declared it to be the most beautiful piece of Swedish interior furniture.

Eström products can be seen in many museums worldwide, among which the prestigious Victoria & Albert Museum of London, the National Museum of Stockholm, as well as the Stedelijk Museum of Amsterdam.
