A unique asymmetrical armchair, designed by the highly acclaimed Danish architect, Hans Olsen. Fried Egg is rooted in 1950s Danish Modernism and appeals to design lovers who like an edgy touch in their homes in the shape of an extraordinary piece of designer furniture that features both personality and warmth. Due to its distinctive shape, this roomy, comfortable chair was christened ‘FRIED EGG’, because that is exactly what it looks like when viewed from above. The flat armrest invites you to swing your legs nonchalantly up over the edge, when you really feel like relaxing. To facilitate the ultimate flexibility when it comes to interior design, Fried Egg is now available in both a right-hand and a left-hand version. This also makes it possible to create a lounge corner with two armchairs mirroring each other, thereby creating a perfect spot for long, relaxed conversations. In homage to the 1950s’ love of colour and teak, Fried Egg is manufactured in this elegant wood with upholstery in a range of carefully selected colours from the Warm Nordic universe.
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.
