Corso nominated for Born Classic 2021

We are happy to announce that newly launched Corso easy chair, design Peter Andersson, has been nominated for the design award Born Classic 2021.

Born Classic is a collaboration between Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair and the Bukowskis auction house. The award goes to a new item of furniture or lighting that is judged to be a potential design classic of the future. The objective is to recognize and encourage good, sustainable design. 

The jury, comprising three experts from the prestigious auction house, had the following motivation when nominating Corso

This is an updated version of Erich Dieckmann’s iconic Modernist seating. As admirers of the Functionalist aesthetic, we love the lines and look of “Corso”. Cleverly chosen materials, quality craftsmanship and Lammhults’ sustainability commitment all helped to secure the nomination.

Corso, designed by Peter Andersson, is a piece of furniture with expressive character, but at the same time minimal in its construction and design.
