Father's Day gifts

Loreum ipsum was presented with the opportunity to become the exclusive Australian retailer and distributor for OMK1965, you didn’t have to ask us twice.

You might already recognise some of the OMK1965 range. The Omkstak chair in a selection of versatile colours is a stackable stand-out for indoor or outdoor living, while the T1 chair in leather & chrome was an instant classic when it first appeared in Terence Conran’s Habitat stores in 1967.

This timeless British furniture brand, established by Rodney Kinsman in mid-60s London, is still producing in the same Italian factory it always has - and to the same exacting specifications. That’s why we think OMK1965 is the perfect complement to our vintage range - the pieces might be new, but their timelessness and second-to-none quality is already established.

    Wegner: Just One Good Chair (9783775738095)


    This elegant, linen-bound book provides a comprehensive overview of Danish designer Hans J. Wegner's unrivalled chairs. 

    Hans J. Wegner typically made his prototypes by hand, using traditional joinery techniques such as tongue-and-groove or finger joints. In the process, he often pushed the limitations of wood, giving his designs an unequaled elegance. Their beauty was matched by their practicality: he considered comfort and aesthetics to be of equal importance. 

    Wegner's chairs helped Danish design to achieve its international breakthrough. Even John F. Kennedy sat on the Round Chair, now known simply as The Chair (1949). Despite his concern for functionality, his personality and sense of humor also shone through his works, as evidenced by his splendid Peacock Chair (1947) or the masculine Ox Chair (1960), available with or without horns.

    "Suffused with his signature wit, Scorcher is a wistful, tender and intricate assortment of vignettes that capture the heart and heat of the Australian summer," says renowned author Craig Silvey.

    And we agree. Slap on the sunscreen, because this one's hot.
