This beautiful, moulded Gesture Chair, designed in the 1950s, was the work of the acclaimed Danish architect, Hans Olsen. With its welcoming design, the Gesture Chair creates a warm atmosphere around a dining table or at a desk in the living room, where it does not hurt if a chair is something special. The armrests invite you to sit down and relax in the moulded design and are also constructed so you cannot get too close to the table. Gesture is a designer chair with a certain weight, offset by its light, playful charm. As a tribute to the 1950s’ adoration of colour, the Gesture Chair is available in an abundance of stunning colours and comes with upholstery on seat and back, upholstery on the seat; or a unique type of wood – depending on the look you after. Choose from high quality leather or several different exclusive fabrics in the most beautiful colours from the Warm Nordic universe. The frame is available in several exclusive types of wood and a variety of surface treatments. Wood from FSC® certified forests and other controlled sources.
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.
