Rare, model Paris, armchair by Jonas Bohlin for Lammhults, 1999


An iconic Swedish 1990s design, model Paris, that came out just before the millennium and was originally designed by Jonas Bohlin in 1997 for an exhibition called LIV ("Life" in Swedish, then in a not upholstered version) that was held at art space Färgfabriken in Stockholm. Two years later in 1999, Swedish manufacturer Lammhults, started to produce an upholstered version of the LIV chair and called it Paris. They produced it for two years 1999 -2001. Most of the chairs were produced in the year 2000 and was not intended to be a limited run but for some reason Lammhults started to put numbers on all they produced. Lammhults most likely did not produced more than 100 chairs since the ones that has resurfaced on the market never have had a number larger then 100. This example lacks the original metal tag since it has been reupholstered at som point. Lammhults did not produce it in this colour on the leather. They were though produced in a few colours to the steel parts, among them this blue one (colour number: RAL 5000) confirmed after contact with Lammhults. After contact with the designer himself, Jonas Bohlin, who at 65 years of age still is a bright shining star on the Swedish and Scandinavian design scen, he confirmed that this is a genuine piece.  Light ware on the seat and back, new leather on armrests.
