Bold Fred Lowen 'T5' Armchairs by Tessa
Sit back and relax in this Australian design classic.
Designed in 1975 by Fred Lowen with obvious cues from the Scandinavian modern tradition. These stylish armchairs have a lightness of form that is rarely matched. Tessa was a high end furniture maker and this stunning design is made to the highest standard – it's a sophisticated and comfortable modern masterpiece.
The T5 is a celebrated modern design. Its strong lines and bold silhouette take obvious cues from Hans Wegner's 1953 'Plank Chair' but this design easily stands on its own merit. We love the commanding hind legs, canvas sling back and spacious armrests - great for resting a glass of your favourite.
