A classic lounge chair, designed in the 50s by the architect Hans Olsen, who was one of the great Danish furniture designers of the era. The Dwell Lounge Chair features an eternal 50s design with armrests in an organic design that invite you to remain - or ‘dwell’ - in the chair. Meanwhile, the sleek, rounded solid wooden legs add to the overall impression of this light, accommodating piece of furniture. While the lounge chair is a beautiful design element in itself, it is just as elegant as part of a bigger conversation grouping: for example, accompanied by the sofa in the same timeless design. The lounge chair is fully upholstered and comes in several versions: everything from classic leather to a lighter appearance with fabric, including the popular bouclé that lends an extra touch of character to the lounge chair. The various fabrics can be combined to create a vibrant look. Dwell is also available in several two-tone versions to create a bolder appearance with the body and seat cushion in different colours – a solution that Hans Olsen was fond of utilising. Choose from the highest quality leather and carefully selected fabrics and shades 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.
