Nizza chair by Bengt Ruda for Ikea, 1959


This chair was designed by Bengt Ruda and did its debut in the 1960 IKEA catalog even though it was designed the year before that in 1959. Nowadays this is a quite rare model even in Sweden. It was, at the time, produced in Denmark witch some of IKEAs better quality pieces were. The design has a very recognisable A-shaped teak frame. This example with original vinyl seat. Good vintage condition.
