Gesture Chair
This beautiful, moulded Gesture Chair, designed in the 1950s, was the work of the acclaimed Danish architect, Hans Olsen. Gesture Chair is now available in an exclusive anniversary edition with a sustainable fabric launched to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Hans Olsen. With its welcoming design, the Gesture Chair creates a warm atmosphere around a dining table or at a desk in the living room, where it does not hurt if a chair is something special. The armrests invite you to sit down and relax in the moulded design and are also constructed so you cannot get too close to the table. Gesture is a designer chair with a certain weight, offset by its light, playful charm. As a tribute to the 1950s’ adoration of colour, the Gesture Chair is available in an abundance of stunning colours and comes with upholstery on seat and back, upholstery on the seat; or a unique type of wood – depending on the desired look. Choose from high quality leather or several different exclusive fabrics in the most beautiful colours from the Warm Nordic universe. The frame is available in several exclusive types of wood and a variety of surface treatments. The anniversary edition of the Gesture Chair is constructed of black lacquered beech with leather upholstery on the back and a sustainable fabric from Kvadrat on the seat. The fabric, Merit by Maharam, is available in four exclusively selected colours with a modern lightness. The back and seat are made of FSC-certified wood on the anniversary edition of the chair.

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.
