About the Designer:
Born in 1923 Ejvind Johansson trained in the traditional methods of cabinetmaking and joinery and after his training he studied at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, as most of his contemporaries did, graduating in 1949. In 1956 he became the head of design at Fredericia Stolefabric (FDB), occupying a position previously held by renowned Danish designer Borge Mogensen who took the company and brought it into the modern age with simple, clean and almost spare designs that would go on to become icons of Danish Modernism. Ejvind Johansson designs which embodied the idea of well-made, everyday furniture, suited perfectly the new design aesthetic and today Frederica still manufactures many of his designs.

A Luna lounge chair designed by Pierre Guariche for his planetary series for Meurop, Belgium, 1967. The chair swivels and is covered in the original black skai (faux leather). The fabric has quite a few small nicks on it (looks like a cat may have been sharpening its claws!), but these are only noticeable if you are examining it up very close. There is also a small chip out of the underneath edge of the base which again is not noticeable unless you are examining the chair from up close and it is upside down!.

About the designer:
Pierre Guariche (France, 1926 - 1995) was one of France's most famous post-war designers. Born in 1926, he graduated from France's École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in 1949. Trained as a set designer-decorator, he began in Marcel Gascoin's studio, and then struck out on his own in 1951. In 1957 Guariche went to Belgium to manage the design department of a furniture manufacturer: Meurop. In the late 1950s he became head of the Meurop design studio. At the height of his career, Guariche worked mostly as an architect, designing many private residences as well as commercial and public spaces, including several ski stations. Overall, his designs reflect a commitment to simplicity and to creating furniture in series that can be industrially produced.

About the designer:
The iconic Norwegian designer Ingmar Anton Relling (1920 - 2002) was born in Sikkvlven, Norway.
From the age of 16 he worked at the Vestlandske Mobelfabrikk AS. Seven years later he started his studies in Interior Architecture and Furniture Design at Oslo's SKHS (Statens Håndverks- og Kunstindustriskole) After finishing his studies in 1947 he worked in the drawing offices of Rastad & Relling AS before setting up his own studio in 1950. For several years he concentrated on interior architecture and worked on churches, libraries and a hotel, but from 1960 Relling dedicated himself entirely to furniture design. In doing this he became Norway's most famous and recognised furniture designer as well as one of the greatest contributors to the concept 'Scandinavian Design'. Relling attained international acclaim with his SIESTA chair.
