Although the first IKEA store was open in 1991 IKEA's presence in Poland lasts for much longer. In 1961 IKEA's founder Ingvar Kaprad came to Poland and apart from developing a taste for vodka he ordered first 500 OGLA chairs in one of local furniture factories.

So using wood with annual rings dating 50 years is a good way to suggest this !?

Basically this says we 've been cutting millions of trees for the last 50 years. I doubt IKEA would ever buy this.

This is a scam, I think ... IKEA would not approve a campaign with a bad ecological connotation.

Actually, it is an approved campaign that's been running in Poland for the last couple of months. And yes, we know the story behind this chair - it's been described in a TV ads that all deal with the anniversary of the cooperation between IKEA and Polish furniture factories.
Anyways, I like the IKEA-like simplicity of the lay-out and the unusual angle of the photo used.

Good idea... and a fresh way of looking at things.

Yeah, so tree rings have been done to death, but this is a cool way of using it.

Goes with the IKEA philosophy of simplicity.
