The Mr. Olsen Lounge Chair is a classic, sophisticated armchair designed in the 1950s by the highly acclaimed Danish architect, Hans Olsen. The design 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 chair’s armrests and the round, tapered legs. The chair is available both in a classic leather version and a fully upholstered version in beautiful fabrics, including sophisticated velour for a more daring look.

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.
