Fried Egg
A unique asymmetrical armchair, designed by the highly acclaimed Danish architect, Hans Olsen. Fried Egg is rooted in 1950s Danish Modernism and appeals to design lovers who like an edgy touch in their homes in the shape of an extraordinary piece of designer furniture that features both personality and warmth. Due to its distinctive shape, this roomy, comfortable chair was christened ‘FRIED EGG’, because that is exactly what it looks like when viewed from above. The flat armrest invites you to swing your legs nonchalantly up over the edge, when you really feel like relaxing. To facilitate the ultimate flexibility when it comes to interior design, Fried Egg is now available in both a right-hand and a left-hand version. This also makes it possible to create a lounge corner with two armchairs mirroring each other, thereby creating a perfect spot for long, relaxed conversations. In homage to the 1950s’ love of colour and teak, Fried Egg is manufactured in this elegant wood with upholstery in a range of carefully selected colours from the Warm Nordic universe.

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.
