Hans Olsen vintage 1960s Balloon chair for Lea of Denmark

Hans Olsen vintage 1960s Balloon chair for Lea of Denmark

We bought this lovely stylish chair from the family of the original owners who bought new over 50 years ago . It’s in good vintage condition with only slight wear to the original suede upholstery .

A design classic that has recently been re-issued along with other Hans Olsen designs such as the rarely seen and amazing Fried Egg chair with permission from his family . None of the re-issued pieces are cheap .

Hans Olsen is one of an amazing array of Danish designers working very successfully in the 1950s , 1960s and 1970s . Its easy to say who the top 3 or 4 Danish designers were as they had world class acclaim and success at the time , but there are possibly 15 to 20 other Danish designers including Hans Olsen who also designed some iconic pieces , and then probably 30 or more others who on their day produced some fab pieces .

The metal frame is in good order with no pitting or obvious damage , the small teak arms are currently in nice vintage condition , and would clean easily in a few minutes if required .

Price: SOLD
