A unique asymmetrical lounge chair, designed by the highly acclaimed Danish architect, Hans Olsen in the 1950s. Fried Egg is also available in an exclusive anniversary edition with sustainable fabric, launched to celebrate the 100th birthday of Hans Olsen. The Fried Egg chair, in all its personality and capriciousness, is at last available for any design lovers who wish to add a bit of edginess to their homes in the shape of a unique item of designer furniture with roots in Danish Modernism. 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. As a tribute to the 1950s’ adoration of colour and love of teak, one of the Fried Egg options is this elegant type of wood and upholstery in a range of stunning colours. You also have the option of playing with two-tone combinations, which are strongly reminiscent of a fried egg.
Choose an exclusive furnishing fabric from Kvadrat in a carefully selected shade from the Warm Nordic universe. The frame is available in the highest quality teak.
The anniversary edition of Fried Egg is available in two beautiful options, both of which add an extra sensuousness to the Fried Egg chair by combining three different colours on the inside, outside, and on the cushion. The fabrics are a combination of Hero and sustainable textiles, Re-wool and Merit by Maharam, in colours with a modern and light expression.
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.
