Ikea’s Chris Martin Revealed!

If you have ever visited an Ikea or perused their catalog, you too may have noticed that many designs have been created by a man named “Chris Martin.” I have often wondered what this “Chris Martin” looked like, if he bared any resemblance to the Chris Martin married to Gwyneth Paltrow and lead singer of Coldplay.

Well my prayers have finally been answered with the 2008 Ikea catalog. Behold, it’s Chris Martin of Ikea fame, designer of the Ellan chair:

Both Chris Martins seem to have closely cropped, light colored hair, but Coldplay’s Chris is probably a bit taller and thinner than Ikea Chris.

  1. the pictures of the designers of the ikea-products have been in the swedish catalog for a while, this isn’t really a new thing. but before they put the pictures in our catalog I too was confused – “Coldplay’s Chris doing IKEA furniture? whopa! now I’ve seen everything”

  2. I went college and did my design degree with Chris. He’s a thoroughly nice guys and one of the most talented people on the course. In fact I’ve still got a could of his etchings at home – spookily enough chairs are the subject matter.
