When Australian photographer Lewis Morley was asked to take some shots of a soon-to-be-infamous glamorous young girl called Christine Keeler during the Swinging Sixties in London, he would have had no idea that his now legendary and much-imitated photograph would highlight a major problem within the design industry that continues to this day.
Morley took various shots of a nude Keeler seated on a chair which at first glance appears to be a famous ‘Series 7' chair designed by Danish designer Arne Jacobsen.
