Description

Fried Egg lounge chair, designed by Hans Olsen in 1956, is a Danish design classic that has been re-released by Warm Nordic. When viewed from above, the asymmetric shape of the lounge chair does indeed resemble a fried egg. Also known as the Model 188, the Fried Egg is a fine example of Hans Olsen’s love for playful shapes and top-quality materials. The chair has been upholstered in a durable Kvadrat fabric, and its legs are oiled teak wood. Fried Egg adds a delightful touch of experimental design attitude of the 1950s also to contemporary interiors.

Hans Olsen

Hans Olsen (1919-1992) was a Danish furniture designer who is famous for his experiments with bent, laminated wood. Olsen was a student of the noted designer Kaare Klint at the Royal Danish Academy, and he developed a distinctive style by combining classic references and organic lines with a touch of humour. The Balloon lounge chair, released in 1955, is a fine example of his work.
