The Fried Egg is a unique asymmetrical armchair designed in the 1950s by the highly acclaimed Danish architect, Hans Olsen. In this memorable design, Olsen was not afraid to combine classic values with a little humour.

Fried Egg received well-deserved attention when it was presented at the Cabinetmakers’ Guild Furniture Exhibition in Copenhagen in 1956. Today, the design is considered just as playful and edgy as when it was first conceived.

Designed by Hans Olsen

Hans Olsen (1919-1992) made his own special mark on the Danish Modernism of the 1950s with his consummately designed, characterful furniture. Today, several of his design classics are collector icons and sell for high prices at international auctions.

Hans Olsen’s remarkable designs from the 1950s are vivid examples of the beautiful diversity of Danish Modernism. The Danish architect and industrial designer took on the classic virtues of the Academy of Fine Arts and the great master, Kaare Klint, but opted for a more playful and experimental approach to furniture design.
