This light, elegant chair, The Orange was designed in the 1950s by the acclaimed Danish architect, Hans Olsen. Thanks to its classic expression, The Orange chair will complement either a contemporary or more timeless interior as an effortless addition to the existing furniture in the home. Hans Olsen’s The Orange chair is one of the earliest known shell chairs and acquired its name because of its characteristic back and seat, which are reminiscent of orange peel. Reflecting both the era’s experiments with colour and the architect’s own playful attitude to design, this upholstered shell chair is also available in a two-tone version.
Choose from several different exclusive furnishing fabrics from the likes of Kvadrat in a variety of classic colours and combinations from the Warm Nordic universe. The frame is available in the highest quality oiled, smoked or black-stained oak.
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.
