A classic, sophisticated designer sofa designed in the 1950s by the highly acclaimed Danish architect, Hans Olsen. The sofa is now available in an exclusive anniversary edition with sustainable textiles launched on the occasion of Hans Olsen’s 100th anniversary. The Mr Olsen sofa is an original design that is a perfect match for a gentleman’s room or a feminine sofa group, in a home office or a holiday cottage: anywhere that classic furniture design makes all the difference. Mr Olsen is both slender and organic with a lightness that is unusual by comparison with other design classics of the period. Mr Olsen’s special elegance derives particularly from the soft shapes of the sofa’s armrests and the round, tapered legs. The sofa is available both in a classic leather version and a fully upholstered version in beautiful fabrics, including sophisticated velour for a more daring look. Choose from several different exclusive furnishing fabrics from the likes of Kvadrat in a variety of classic colours from the Warm Nordic universe. The frame is available in the highest quality walnut, oiled oak, or smoked oak. The anniversary edition of the Mr Olsen sofa is two-toned with a lively, yet elegant expression covered in two different sustainable fabrics from Kvadrat. The sofa comes in a light purple version in Re-wool from Kvadrat and a peach version in Merit by Maharam, both of which excel in sustainability, sensuosity and quality. The frame on the anniversary sofa is constructed of FSC-certified wood.
The elegant Mr Olsen sofa was originally designed in 1958 by the architect Hans Olsen, whose experiments led to some highly original designer furniture. The sofa was a part of the 800 range and is the architect’s personal take on the classic sofa. An armchair is also available in the same consummate design. The Mr Olsen sofa is characterised by its refined appearance. The upholstered sofa was a solid genre piece for designers like Olsen, who were trained in the tradition of Kaare Klint, but Hans Olsen managed to unfetter himself and invest Mr Olsen with personality and finesse. As such, the design captures the zeitgeist of the 1950s, when experiments, bravery and skill resulted in world-class furniture. The Mr Olsen armchair 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 sustainable anniversary edition of the Mr Olsen sofa has been created for the occasion of the 100-year anniversary for Hans Olsen’s birth where new, sustainable textiles have been brought into the Warm Nordic universe to combine tradition and renewal.
