The Orange
This light, elegant chair, The Orange was designed in the 1950s by the acclaimed Danish architect, Hans Olsen. Thanks to its classic expression, The Orange chair will complement either a contemporary or more timeless interior as an effortless addition to the existing furniture in the home. Hans Olsen’s The Orange chair is one of the earliest known shell chairs and acquired its name because of its characteristic back and seat, which are reminiscent of orange peel. Reflecting both the era’s experiments with colour and the architect’s own playful attitude to design, this upholstered shell chair is also available in a two-tone version. Choose from several different exclusive furnishing fabrics from the likes of Kvadrat in a variety of classic colours and combinations from the Warm Nordic universe. The frame is available in the highest quality oiled, smoked or black-stained 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.
