Details and Condition::Striking “Bangkok” cabinet by Yngve Ekström, made from teak with a graphic, embossed pattern on the door fronts. Details made in beech create a subtle contrast.

His furniture has been exhibited all over the world and are represented among others on the Victoria & Albert museum in London.
