Best Products: Frosta Stool by Gillis Lundgren

It fits quietly into a variety of decors, is super cheap ($1912.99) and can be customized with paint, lacquer or padding to hide its mild Ikea-ness. Our only question is did this design really originate with Gillis or did he copy if from somewhere else?
