Fried Egg Sheep
Fried Egg Sheep
Unique asymmetrical armchair with soft sheepskin. The Fried Egg armchair was designed by the highly acclaimed Danish architect, Hans Olsen in the 1950s. The personality and caprice that characterise this unique designer chair are emphasised in this extremely comfortable sheepskin version that is now available to design lovers. This roomy, comfortable chair was christened 'FRIED EGG', because that is what it looks like when viewed from above. The flat armrests invite you to swing your legs nonchalantly up on them, when you really feel like relaxing. The soft, naturally curly sheepskin upholstery is available in three versions, each with its own charm. There is a beautiful grey version with a dark, subdued expression. The bright version features lightness and elegance and a slightly stronger fleece. Finally, there is a distinctive, faceted version with hand-stitched sheepskin, in which sheepskin remnants in various colours have been combined, making each stool a unique piece of furniture. As a tribute to the 1950s' love of teak, Fried Egg is available in this elegant wood.
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.
