With 77 years the Swedish designer Åke Axelsson not even thinks of resigning from work. At this year’s Stockholm Furniture Fair he proudly presented ‘Wood’, his latest piece for the Swedish manufacturer Gärsnäs. The components of this elegant lightweight chair are made with a traditional steaming technique that uses a minimal amount of wood. Wood is packed disassembled in a recyclable cartonboard in order to reduce transport volume.
