The renowned Danish architect Hans Olsen is behind the light and elegant chair The Orange, which was designed in the 50s. Thanks to its classic expression, The Orange is a chair that complements both modern and more timeless interiors, and will be added effortlessly to existing furniture in the home. The Orange chair from Hans Olsen's hand is one of the earliest known shell chairs and has been nicknamed the Orange because of its characteristic back and seat, reminiscent of orange peels. With reference to the era's color experiments and the architect's own playful attitude to design, the upholstered shell chair is also available in a two-tone variant. Choose from various exclusive textiles from, among others, Kvadrat in several classic colors and combinations from the Warm Nordic universe. The frame is available in both oiled and black-stained oak of the highest quality.
Hans Olsen (1919-1992) left his own mark on 1950s Danish modernism with his well-rounded furniture with personality. Several design classics from the hand of the Danish architect are today collectors' icons and are sold for high bids at international auctions. Here, Hans Olsen illustrates how the iconic Fried Egg chair with its distinctive design invites you to throw your legs nonchalantly over the side of the chair.
