Description

The design of the Balloon Chair chair is raw, playful and embracing, appealing to the senses with exquisite suede, teak armrests and a light metal frame.

Balloon will lend a touch of cosiness and lounge ambience to any area of the home, either alone or in the company of other furniture, whether modern or classic.

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.
