The classic Gesture Chair was originally designed in 1957 by the architect Hans Olsen, whose experiments led to some highly original designer furniture. The chair is also referred to as ‘Model 107’. The key feature of the Gesture Chair is its accommodating design, which is moulded in a single piece. In both aesthetic and ergonomic terms, it was a successful result of Hans Olsen’s fascination with this method of manufacture. As such, the design captures the zeitgeist of the 1950s, when experiments, bravery and skill resulted in world-class furniture. The Gesture chair has been specially selected for the Warm Nordic range as a tribute to iconic Nordic design that invests modern décor with invaluable diversity and depth. The anniversary edition of the Gesture Chair is created in tribute to Hans Olsen’s 100th birthday, where new sustainable Kvadrat fabrics have made their way to Warm Nordics universe to combine tradition and renewal.
