I have LEMS from Lapalma myself. They are pretty nice and not overly expensive but I suppose thats just my opinion.https://www.google.de/search?q=lem+lapalma&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=xDI3VeDKC4Xzat27gZgC&ved=0CGUQsAQ&biw=1680&bih=914
Nice chair indeed. I love Fukasawa´s style and even bought his Itis lamps for the kids a while back.
Whereas I agree with your argument, I do believe that despite appreciating the beauty of certain objects, at some point if we all choose to purchase the same items whether it be clothing or furniture, that those items become a sort of standard uniform which results in self expression being lost. A uniform can also be a form of self expression but its easier to be part of a group than to stand on ones own.
What do you think of HAY in Denmark. I bought some of their cushions and they seem to be trying to support up and coming designers. At the end of the day its all about making moneybut they seem to have a good name?
Finn I´m sort behind you on this one but not fully. Wegner, Jacobsen & Co all produced magnificent furniture in the 50´s and 60´s but it never really filtered down to the broader public who were stillstuck in there old ways.

They make good refrigerators so the choice is down to taste.Personally I think it depends on your kitchen overall but if I had the right Kitchen I´d choose the smeg over the bosch.
I was referring to the use of the tubular steel. You do know that Thonet produced the first models of the LC4 for Corbusier? It was Charlotte Perriand who joined Corbusier to help him realize the LC4.That was in 1927. If imitation is the sincerest flattery then we can call it flattery. If it were to happen today I´m sure we´d be reading about copyright cases. You can ignore the controversy over Le Corb and the 1027 house and Gray if you will. She was basically a furniture...
Thonet was working with Corbusier who was Jealous of Eileen Grays 1027 house and furniture. She started working with tubular steel after been influenced by Mart stam who invented the first free swinging chair in 1926 the same time Gray started to build the E1027 house which Corbusier so coveted. Corbusier pinched Thonet chair development and had even contacted Peugeot bikes to start production (which they turned down). Call it thieving or inspiration but it was common...
