Description

With its welcoming design, the Gesture chair creates a warm atmosphere around a dining table or at a desk. As a tribute to the 1950s’ adoration of colour, the Gesture chair is available in an abundance of stunning colours in a number of versions: fully upholstered; with upholstery on the seat.

About the Designer / Hans Olsen (1919–1992) made his own special mark on the Danish Modernism of the 1950s with his consummately designed, characterful furniture. Today, several of his design classics are collector icons and sell for high prices at international auctions.

Hans Olsen’s remarkable designs from the 1950s are vivid examples of the beautiful diversity of Danish Modernism. The Danish architect and industrial designer took on the classic virtues of the Academy of Fine Arts and the great master, Kaare Klint, but opted for a more playful and experimental approach to furniture design.
