Hans Olsen "Fried Egg" Chair $12,500>

The distinctive “Fried Egg” Chair was designed in 1956 by the Danish architect Hans Olsen and produced by Bramin. This chair is also referred to as ‘Model 188’ and is a collector’s icon, which only rarely comes up for auction in Denmark. This chair stands out with its playful idiom, which in its very own way captures the zeitgeist of the 1950s; when experiments, bravery and skill resulted in world class-furniture. Hans Olsen had an exceptional awareness of line, surface, and color. In his designs he was not afraid to combine classic values with humor, and the Fried Egg chair aroused well-deserved attention when it was presented at the Cabinetmakers’ Guild Furniture Exhibition in Copenhagen in 1956.
