A classic, sophisticated designer sofa designed in the 1950s by the highly acclaimed Danish architect, Hans Olsen. The sofa is now available in an exclusive anniversary edition with sustainable textiles launched on the occasion of Hans Olsen’s 100th anniversary. The Mr Olsen sofa is an original design that is a perfect match for a gentleman’s room or a feminine sofa group, in a home office or a holiday cottage: anywhere that classic furniture design makes all the difference. Mr Olsen 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 sofa’s armrests and the round, tapered legs. The sofa is available both in a classic leather version and a fully upholstered version in beautiful fabrics, including sophisticated velour for a more daring look.
Choose from several different exclusive furnishing fabrics from the likes of Kvadrat in a variety of classic colours from the Warm Nordic universe. The frame is available in the highest quality walnut, oiled oak, or smoked oak.
The anniversary edition of the Mr Olsen sofa is two-toned with a lively, yet elegant expression covered in two different sustainable fabrics from Kvadrat. The sofa comes in a light purple version in Re-wool from Kvadrat and a peach version in Merit by Maharam, both of which excel in sustainability, sensuosity and quality. The frame on the anniversary sofa is constructed of FSC-certified 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.
