Announcing the Launch of Omann Jun
As part of our Good Form range, we are proud to announce the launch of Danish brand Omann Jun. The company is renowned for its iconic, mid-century designed furniture. Under continued family ownership, these are reissued and finished for a contemporary audience.Words by Emma Eagle
It’s been over twelve years since we first laid eyes on the ‘Model 18’ sideboard and in our opinion, it remains one of the most elegant mid-century sideboards to emerge from Denmark.
When Ulrich Omann, part of the original, founding family, decided to re-release some of the most popular designs from the Omann Jun back catalogue we knew immediately that we would need to be involved.
We are delighted to begin our relationship with Omann Jun by offering the Model 18 sideboard. This refined offering is simple and supremely sculptural. The sharp, knife-blade handles, organic detailing and a perfectly balanced form will ensure this iconic sideboard holds an important place Danish design history.
It is expected that Omann Jun will continue to release further designs into production in coming years and we look forward to expanding the offering to a New Zealand audience.
