Mr. Olsen
A classic, sophisticated armchair created in the 1950s by the highly acclaimed Danish architect, Hans Olsen. Mr Olsen is an original design that is a perfect match for a gentleman’s room or a feminine sofa group, in a home office or a holiday cottage. Anywhere that classic furniture design makes all the difference. The armchair is both slender and organic with a lightness that is unusual by comparison with other design classics of the period. Mr Olsen’s special elegance derives particularly from the soft shapes of the armchair’s armrests and the round, tapered legs. The armchair is available both in a classic leather version and a fully upholstered version in beautiful fabrics, including sophisticated velour for a more daring look. Choose from several different exclusive furnishing fabrics from the likes of Kvadrat in a variety of classic colours from the Warm Nordic universe. The frame is available in the highest quality walnut oiled oak or smoked oak.

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.
