Gesture Chair Colour
Gesture Chair Colour
Exclusive special edition of Hans Olsen’s 50s moulded design in brand new colours curated by the award-winning designer Alfredo Häberli. With deep respect for the modernist design and the inherent quality of the dining chair, he has created an elegant colour palette and monochrome interpretation that underscores the essence of the Gesture Chair while adding a modern feel and edginess. All the colours and associated textiles were carefully selected for their sensory character and are the perfect accompaniment to Hans Olsen’s playful idiom and colourful universe. With its welcoming design, the Gesture Chair creates a warm atmosphere around the dining table or at the desk in the living room, where it does not hurt for a chair to be something special. The armrests invite you to sit down and relax in the form-fitting design and are also constructed so that you can move close to the table. The Gesture Chair is a beautiful, ergonomically successful designer chair with a certain heaviness, but balanced by its light, playful character. So, Alfredo Häberli focused exclusively on the colour scheme - a simple statement with great emotional significance. His monochrome interpretation enhances the Gesture Chair with a new depth and the subtle impact of the colour revives the chair’s relevance. This special lacquered version of the Gesture Chair is available in six curated colours, each with its own individual character, but coordinated so that you can combine chairs in different colours around a dining table. The upholstery on the seat - or both seat and back - adds another layer to the colour scheme. Although from a distance the colour of the fabric looks the same, it actually adds a different hue and texture in its actual encounter with the chair. Choose from the Light Blue, Sour Yellow, Dark Green, Dark Blue, Dark Blue, Rust and Red.
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.
