Description

The Lean Back lounge chair, designed by Arne Hovmand-Olsen in 1957, is a Danish design classic that has been re-released by Warm Nordic. Lean Back got its name from the relaxed shape of the backrest that invites you to sit down and lean back. The flowingly shaped wooden chair is a fine example of Arne Hovmand-Olsen’s love for top-quality materials and airy design. Thanks to its lightweight structure and harmonic appearance from front to back, Lean Back will find its place either by the wall or at the centre of the room.

Arne Hovmand-Olsen

Danish furniture designer Arne Hovmand-Olsen (1919-1989) started his career in 1938 as a cabinetmaker for P.Olsen Sibast. After studying furniture design in a technical school, Hovmand-Olsen founded his own workshop with great success – his designs gained success not only in Denmark but also internationally, especially in the United States.

Arne Hovmand-Olsen was born in 1919 in Denmark in a farm family. He quickly developed an interest for drawing and creation. He started his career in 1938 by an apprenticeship as cabinet maker for P.Olsen Sibast. He really wanted to produce his own creation. He decided to study in a technical school dedicated to furniture design. Once he finished his training program, he founded his own workshop. He quickly met with great success: he sold in Denmark but especially in the United States! His workshop closed during the 1970.
