Fried Egg
A unique asymmetrical lounge chair, designed by the highly acclaimed Danish architect, Hans Olsen in the 1950s. The Fried Egg chair, in all its personality and capriciousness, is at last available for any design lovers who wish to add a bit of edginess to their homes in the shape of a unique item of designer furniture with roots in Danish Modernism. This roomy, comfortable chair was christened ‘Fried Egg’, because that is what it looks like when viewed from above. The flat armrests invite you to swing your legs nonchalantly up on them, when you really feel like relaxing. As a tribute to the 1950s’ adoration of colour and love of teak, one of the Fried Egg options is this elegant type of wood and upholstery in a range of stunning colours. You also have the option of playing with two-tone combinations, which are strongly reminiscent of a fried egg. Choose an exclusive furnishing fabric from Kvadrat in a carefully selected shade from the Warm Nordic universe. The frame is available in the highest quality teak.

Hans Olsen
Hans Olsen’s (1919-1992) remarkable designs from the 1950s are vivid examples of the beautiful diversity of Danish Modernism. This Danish architect and industrial designer took on the classic virtues of the Academy of Fine Arts and the great master, Kaare Klint, but opted for a more playful and experimental approach to furniture design. Hans Olsen challenged contemporary production methods and much of his inspiration came from the opportunities offered by moulding wood.
